New England hands down, when I came back to Ohio in 1973 we got two inches of snow and all the schools were closed, I could not believe it, not that I was complaining.

My guess is that areas like the Snowbelt (areas near the Great Lakes that receive a ton of snow), notably the metros in western New York and Pennsylvania, plus resort areas in the Rockies and northern Appalachian mountains.

Northeast, Great Lakes, Upper Midwest. Snow falls and it's no big deal.

It snows in MD, Carolinas, or Deeper South and entire cities shutdown in a panic. Accidents everywhere, schools closed for an inch, stores cleaned out. It's pretty funny.

The Upper South does not handle snow well...

Florida definitely handles snow the best.

The South. Because we treating it like a reason for a party instead of an obstacle to work around in order to reach the office. We all sit inside, shove another log on the fireplace, and drink with the neighbors. When the snow melts the next day, we all head back to our jobs. And the maternity wards fill up 9.5 months later.

Gang plowing or plowing in formation was developed by the Minnesota Department of Transportation.
