Nice reply, and dead on the mark too.
several years back Dallas got a mere 1" of ice from an ice storm, and it
literally shut the city down.
now being a Texan myself, from even further south than Dallas I can see
where they're not used to/prepared for such a thing, however I do tend to
laugh at them over it because snow and Ice have never affected MY driving in
such a way.
But first and foremost politics don't have anything to do with it (as you
stated) it's the situation + the local.. nothing more...
hmm I think I said the right.
