give me a break. They do the same thing in Baltimore, DC, Philly and NYC. Maybe not Boston but those 4 markets definitely have the weather and news reporters outside doing the same damn thing as the stations here.

I'm staying home. I've witnessed enough West Virginia, New York, and New Jersey plates from last year slamming into medians, sliding off the road, and sliding down hills into parked cars. For some reason these drivers I witnessed thought they were immune to an inch or two of Georgia ice. Not to mention, Atlanta is a city of transplants, so it was funny watching the news ridicule their own natives.

And Illinois and Michigan plates! Don't forget about them!

That's not true. It isn't like driving on dry pavement, but there are skills you develop over years of experience that help keep you and others around you safe in such conditions. Is it perfect? Of course not. Even the most experienced and careful drivers have accidents occasionally. But there is an advantage to experience.

I'm surprised to learn that schools were originally to be open. Even the German company I work for considers Monday a holiday.
