People In The South Be Like…



5605

Arctic blasts and polar vortexes are causing ridiculously low temps and even snow down south. Don’t get me wrong, I love the south and never plan on ever moving back north but if there is ever another Civil War all the North needs to do to win is wait until the winter to fight. By the reactions I’ve seen to an inch of snow you’d think it’s the Apocalypse! It’s going to be back up to 65 Saturday where we live. Who needs that much stuff to survive 2 days?!?!

    LOL, southerners are hilarious. You don’t see us freaking out like that in the north when it hits 100ยบ in the summer. It’s -25 air temp, -40 w/ windchill here and I just put on my stocking cap last night. Wimps.

    I heard Atlanta became a gigantic parking lot with people overnighting in cars–all this due to TWO INCHES of snow.

    I work in a the dairy department of a Wal-mart. A couple small gas stations from the neighboring villages do this. They fill shopping carts with milk (and other stuffs) to resell at their location. I always tell people not to buy from them cause you have know idea how long that stuff has been sitting unrefridgerated

    I was a teen during the infamous Blizzard of ’78 and know full well what being stuck on the roads mean. 27 inches of snow literally crippled the state of MASS. My aunt/uncle litterally were stuck on the highway as the snow piled up…they had to find a local motel and their 4 kids were at home fending for themselves. My parents were home with 8 of the 9 kids during this…and the clean up was forever! the stores ran out of everything and could not get their shipments because of the clogged roads. but the south tends to take things to extremes in these cases. this is funny and sad. when we vacationed in FL. in dec/jan…we knew the locals….on 60 degree days they were wearing ful fur coats…while we wore shorts and t shirts!

    I’m one of the victims of the weather yesterday….it took 4 hours to drive 40 miles due to road conditions. We don’t have salt trucks or snow plows…we’re not wimps, we’re not stupid, we’re just not accustomed to a lot of snow and ice. Don’t insult or laugh at us until you go through the same thing without all the resources you have to help you.

    I took this picture over a year ago in Chicago. I sent it to friends, and one friend Tweeted it. It was taken in Chicago, not Georgia…and it was not during severe weather, making me wonder all the more what they were doing buying so much milk.

    I think that these are s***bags who are buying all that milk hoping to sell it to their neighbors for $10 a gallon when the stores run out.

    Bad weather is relative. It’s not how much snow you get, but how much you get compared to how much you’re used to, and prepared for. The same thing happens in Portland and Seattle. They get what seems like a tiny amount of snow, and because they have one plow, and no one knows how to drive in the snow, it paralyses the city.

    I don’t understand all that milk. If you’re stocking up on food because you think food deliveries will be interrupted, you should focus on non-perishable food. That guy needs more crackers and toilet paper, and less milk.

    Looks more like the response to Obama attempting to stall the farm bill and the impending price change on milk. You can freeze gallons of milk for months, and with it looking like the price is going to double on milk and other farm products the first of Feb., this is a reasonable action…… just happens to fall during the snowstorm hahaha

    @susan….”victm”…let me tell you that bad weather happens…you knew it was coming…the state has salt/sand trucks by their own admissions…the fact that the state did not plan this is out correctly sucks but you deal with it…it is no different when it starts snowing during our work day and we are all let go at the same time…a 30 minute commute becomes a 2 hr pain in the ass…but victim? no!…that 2hrs to go 10 miles….! knowing this weather was on the way…did you prepare? i doubt it.

    In reference to the picture: They are going to sell it at their gas stations. They probably bought it much cheaper at Wal-Mart than what the dairy charges them to deliver it to their stores. The same goes for soft drinks. It is probably are
    rare find, but you should try to support locally owned and American owned
    “mom & pop” stores. They appreciate the business!

    I live in Southern Ohio – yet people here act like we are in the South when it snows. Whenever they call for 1-3″ (not to be unexpected in Ohio I feel) the store shelves all go empty, the gas stations run out of gas and everyone acts like it is snowmaggedon!

    However, I moved here from a much better equipped area of Ohio where I rarely had to drive on slick roads because plows were out in force 24 hours in advance preparing the roads. Moving here was quite a shock – there is less snow here, they rarely treat the roads during a storm and there’s more ice, the first time I had to drive to work on nothing but ice was a challenge, but I made it. I don’t really feel bad for the people in the South right now – either suck it up and deal (be careful, go slow – going fast in a 4WD car just means you’ll spin faster when you spin out) or stay home and stop whining. I’ll just be here thawing from the -20 weather we’ve had here.

    @MS CODPIECE
    That was not something anyone could have planned for down in the south. There was absolutely no snow\ice that morning and then about mid morning everything went to hell. Those of us that live in the south don’t know how to deal with such conditions and some have never thought such a thing could happen. I’m in my mid 20s and I’ve seen snow only once in my entire adult life before this, I do believe the last time my city was shut down due to snow was in ’92. So please don’t judge if southerners seem ill-equipped to deal..

    well I live in Philadelphia, we have a few inches of snow today and its a total panic in the stores and with the media. So much for it being a “Southern” thing.

    And no one up here can drive in snow either -

    Wait for the extreme cold to come to win a war…you might be joking, but that’s how Russia beat Napoleon & his army….but you are absolutely right, us southerners do over-react & it doesn’t help that many of us can’t even drive in the rain, much less ice or snow.
