That is exactly why I moved from NY and PA! I hate snow. We've been down south for just 9 years now and, except for the freak snow "storm" last winter that gave us 4", we had a total accumulation of 2" total for the 8 years prior. The 4" we got crippled the town for days. We don't have plows or any way to dispose of snow.
In fact, they close schools if there is even a prediction of snow. Oh, and your attendance is required at the Bi-Lo grocery store to stock up on toilet paper, milk, and beer - next stop is the video store for games and movies (hopefully you have a generator in case the power goes out. The generator is for the TV set, not the refrigerator). It's like they expect to be snowed in for weeks.
