I'm originally from the Chicago area where we're use to cold weather, snow and ice. I moved to Southeast Alabama 6 years ago. About 30 minutes from the Florida/Georgia boarders.
They've been predicting 1-3 inches of snow starting late tonight through tomorrow. The weathermen are giddy, they've closed all the schools for tomorrow, government offices are closed, all flights in/out of the local airport have been canceled, public transportation isn't running and they're telling everyone to stay home and off the roads. The news said accumulation is likely on grassy areas and elevated areas such as bridges.
I understand they don't have salt trucks and ice may be a problem on the roads but I feel this is ridiculous. I have a doc's appt tomorrow morning and I have no problem driving in the snow but really stressed about being on the road with everyone who has no idea how to handle it.
Tell me I'm worrying for nothing.
