Almost as bad as here in east Tennessee. Just the mere mention of a single snow flake (seen six years ago) is enough to instill wide spread panic among the locals. Emergency rations here are "light" bread and milk - gone in the grocery stores before you can say -SNOW! Local TV stations go into emergency broadcast mode with local live reports showing the tremendous (a light dusting) amount of accumulation. Schools are closed well in advance of the coming disaster based on the advice of (well informed) meteorologists. Local government officials declare emergency plans and start pre-treating the roads with salt. By the time it is all said and done, what happens? NO SNOW! Oh well, sure is fun to listen to all the tales of impending doom and gloom.
(Oh, by the way, I grew up in NW Missouri and ACTUALLY have survived a snow storm or two).
