Let the snow wars begin.

Northern states receive snow by the feet. Not inches, but feet. Southern states usually receive 1-3 inches, if not less. Of course, this is not always the case. The snow lengths of both the southern and northern regions vary in snow lengths each winter.

With the climate changing, Mother Nature cannot decide among hot, cold, or snowy weather. The amount of snow is never a definite, regardless of what the meteorologist says, until we all stare, peering out our windows and actually watching the snow fall to the ground

Students that live up north still attend school even with snow falling and sticking continually. They must ‘plow’ through the heaps of snow. Students that live down south find themselves at home from a school cancellation when the snow fall accumulates to just under one inch.

Just witnessing a flurry in the sky makes a southern resident jump for joy. The talk of the day revolves around the snow. People living down south post pictures of the snow and update their statuses regularly. A northerner would have a good laugh at that one.

A southerner can somehow make a snowman with only an inch of snow to work with. A northerner would say, “Another snowman again, no way!” At that point, snow of any kind does not faze a northerner.

Snowfall occurs once or twice down south, whereas up north, snowfall occurs quite frequently on a day to day basis. People go about their daily lives as if zero snow is piled up around them.

Maybe within the next day, the south will accumulate up to a foot of snow (according to weather broadcasts). Highly doubtful, but possible.
