Florida! The news is saying it is snowing there? Are you enjoying this? Have you seen snow there yet?

Floridians can't drive for crap in dry conditions. How are they going to handle snow and icy weather? I am predicting I-10 will look a lot like something from The Walking Dead.

All government office closed today and with school still on holiday break there shouldn't be a ton of traffic on the roads.

Nothing screams "you're all idiots who can't drive" when the government shuts down all offices and sends messages to the general public to stay off the roads with a little rain and temps in the low 30s. Unreal.

Try that drive going up and down a 10% grade in the mountains and you'll know what winter driving is like!

Did y'all get anything? I got off the phone with my aunt who lives in Lafayette co. They got an ice storm which knocked out the power. To the north of them I'm assuming it snowed. I'll try to post a pic my other aunt sent me.

I think that means black ice, which you can't see unless there is a glare from a light/moon at night.

Dang, its not like Florida is a state that rarely sees snow. Who cares that you're from up north, and know how to drive in snow. It amazes how ignorant some people can be. The same could have been said when hurricane sandy 'destroyed' the northeast.
