    1. In Columbus, Ohio, where I live, the residents go ballistic, with even one tenth of an inch of snow! They don’t know how to drive in normal weather, and certainly don’t know how to drive in snow. I miss the massive snow removal equipment, which I used to see, when I lived in Brooklyn. Out here, they have bupkis, and rarely, if ever, clear the residential streets of snow.
