Ok, so how long did the snow last and how many car accidents were there? We usually get at least 50 accidents during the first snow of the year, people getting used to driving in it again. Had 40 degrees below zero temps yesterday with wind chill factored in. A little warmer today.

I seen on TV that there was snow in New Orleans. To me, it seemed wierd, although I understand that it does not snow very often in Lousiana (especially in the southern reaches).

Were there a lot of accidents related with the snow in New Orleans?

Snow? What snow? Don't you know it is 80 degrees today?

I can't even believe we had 3 inches plus around here last week. We're all in shorts and t-shirts today. What a difference a few days makes.

Still, inquiring minds want to know: How many businesses closed? How many accidents? How many people thought that it was the end of the world?

Really, you guys are so very lucky right now. We've got about 5 inches on the ground, they're calling for another 2 inches tonight, 5 inches tomorrow, and more snow on Sunday to go with the subzero temps. One of these days I'm gettin outa here and moving down there.

Well, not that many people acted like it was the end of the world, actually. Snow is unusual around here, but not unheard of. It wasn't like a hurricane hitting Chicago or anything lol. There were fewer accidents than I expected, considring Baton Rouge doesn't have all of the road maitenance equipment to deal with snowy conditions. The Interstate 10 Bridge across the Mississippi River was closed for awhile and I think the Airline Highway Bridge was closed, too. School was out in alot of places because the buses around here aren't equipped with snow tires or chains to get the kids to school safely.
