    Britain is far worse, as soon as a snow flake hits the deck trains are cancelled, people ring in work to say they are snowed in and then they all go mad and buy loads of petrol, food and stuff from Tesco causing a mad panic. ITs really quite embarrassing.
    Also most people here do not clear their driveways or pathways, if we all did our bit in front of our houses the whole street would be cleared. ITs why the council give us a big yellow bin full of grit at the top of my road, I live on a hill you see.

Nice try on making Canada seem better than the US though dj.
    Misleading thread title is misleading.

    Should be:

    This is what happens when the south gets 1" of snow on TOP of 3" of damn ice.
    He should get his facts straight.

    Got snow chains where you live? Good..cause we dont. If we want 'em, we have to order them from 'up north'....not like we're all equipped with chains and snow plows to delve away the snow when it falls (seeing as how it falls only once every 4-5 years).

    Got below-ground power lines to residences? Good..cause we dont. We got wooden sticks holding up power lines, which ice forms on (go figure)...and hence, causes power outages when the weight becomes too much.

    I don't really worry much about snow, my ATV does fine, and the winch allows me to help people who don't know how to drive on snow...but putting people down because of the climatic differences in regions of the world...and saying "wow, look at how they handle this stuff that we see 295 days a year"...well, that's sorta childish if you ask me. How bout come drive around in some of our red mud...I for one would get a good laugh at some Yan...I mean, northerners trying to traverse a skidder hole that's 4' deep with mud and water. "hey, what do we do with spinning tires, hey?"

    Same here Keefy. Last year when we had a stupendous amount of snow for months on end the whole neighbourhood brought out grit and gritted the road up to the main road. The road I live on (cul-de-sac and steep hill) has a good half of us being 60+ so us youngsters did the whole street enough for 2 tyres tracks up and down. It was still a little skiddish getting in and out of the driveway but at least we all could move.

    I might live close to the top of the hill but in this town everyone helps out which is nice.

    The south is still part of Merica so title is not misleading at all
