Darryl~ Moderator Updated - December 29, 2012 at 12:57pm PST I saw it was moving through your area as it was building towards us.....I don;t think it will be as bad as all the "hype" but they have to make sure people are prepared,,,,us Nova Scotians tend to get a little "slack" when it comes to listening to warnings....storms tend to aim for us then **** off the coast at the last minute, + 0 Votes I always thought all of Canada was cold and snowy AV . December 18, 2012 at 6:21am PST I can't believe good old NJ gets more snow than you guys. I always get a lot of snow where I live because I'm in the higher elevations, so I can definitely relate to hills. I've gotten pretty good over the years driving in snow, but most of the population here can't drive on a normal day. The flip side of yahoos in compact cars with summer tires are the yahoos with the SUVs that think they're invincible in the snow. They are usually the ones that fly off the road into ditches because they're going too fast. We have no snow here - yet. I'm sure that will change soon.
