Snow in Louisiana
I called my father in Louisiana to wish him happy birthday, and they've got snow on the ground down there, which is a rare event
Growing up, we averaged an inch or so of snow every ten years or so in Baton Rouge. We'd get a dusting, the town would shut down and everybody'd go home. After a bit, if you took a walk, you'd see the lawns of St. Augustine grass would all be mostly bare-- everybody had gone out and rolled all up the snow into big balls to make snowmen.
I never learned to drive in the stuff. When it snows here, I stay home. No point in having my itty bitty car slewing all over the road.
