    There is a difference in the snow further North than the snow in the South. We get a lot of wet snow, freezing and icy conditions for people who are unprepared, don't have a need to keep snow equipment for vehicles, and who aren't experienced in driving in these conditions. In the South, we get a lot of comments about how we panic at the first inkling of snow.

    seems really strange that school are closing already. a;ways seemed strange when I was living in TN, that schools and businesses would close down with the thought of a storm coming and then I heard that George Strait canceled his concert because of the storm... we have been having this kind of weather since I have moved back here to Indiana and have only got 2 of the storms they called for but not all the snow they were calling for... I hope everyone takes care tomorrow and don't take any chances.. hope every one is safe and if it snows, get out there and play in the snow and make some snow angels..
