The people of the south are always telling "them yankees from up north" that they are just as smart, in fact even smarter than we are. Their minds are not cluttered up with book learnin. My question is...how, in the 21st century, does three inches of snow have people stranded for as long as 23 hours?! Don't they have TV weather? Do they not have sand? As much as they may be proud of being "true Americans" they should really begin to question just how smart they are, instead of bring so willfully ignorant. If 3 inches of snow shuts your state down it is time to consider...you might be a redneck.
