I'm a senior at the University of Alabama. I studied abroad in Prague, Czech Republic. It was one of the highlights of my life. If you can, do it. You won't regret it. I'm going to find a way to be a professional traveler. Let me know if you want to join. Ask questions.

"At first we kept saying: ‘We’re going to beat it. We’re going to beat it.’ Then after awhile we began to realize that we might not beat it. Then toward the end, it became clear that we definitely weren’t going to beat it. That’s when she started telling me that she wanted me to move on and find happiness with somebody else. But I’m not quite there yet. Not long ago a noise woke me up in the middle of the night, and I rolled over to ask if she needed anything."

alabama got TWO INCHES of snow and everything just went to shit

Basically

alabama is weak

Pussies

People died. Please don’t.

I live here and until you live here and understand what’s going on, shut up. When it snows here, we have to close down everything. We don’t have snow tires, salt mines, anything to keep this from happening. It was supposed to be a light dusting anyway so we didn’t close anything. Children were at school. Parents at work. So when the snow started to stick unexpectedly, everyone tried to get home. Quickly. But when you have a million people in a metro area trying to get through at one time to get home, to school to get their children, to get somewhere safe, traffic happens. And when it’s ice on the road and you don’t have what it takes on your car to handle those situations, wrecks happen. I have a friend whose brother slept in his school along with the other 4,000+ children that night because they couldn’t leave. People walked 10 miles in 18 degree weather just to get home because roads were shut down. People died in these wrecks and are still there because it’s too dangerous to drive to get them. So until you understand what the hell is going on here and what happens when it snows and ices over everything, shut up.

In sorry if this is a dumb question, but why don’t you have any of the gear required to withstand snow?

I know in FL snow is pretty much nonexistent, but we do have an unreal amount of slush and snow up north. Idk about Alabama though. But I think

and
theperksofbeingpatty
can answer this better than I can.

bleedingmagic in Alabama we rarely ever get snow and when we do, we know it’s coming. So we shut down work places, schools, everything. So that we won’t have any problems. We can’t afford all the snow equipment needed to handle these things, and there is really no point in buying them because of the fact that they will never be used. Something that happened on Tuesday is such a rare occurrence, it’d be like New York preparing evacuation procedures for hurricanes. It NEVER happens, so why should we spend time and money for things that will never come. And as of 6 am Tuesday morning, we were only supposed to have a light dusting. Nothing to worry about. But it stuck and it stuck fast. Which never happens. It’s not a dumb question, it’s legitimate. We never need it, so we don’t have them.

SERIOUSLY WHO THE FUCK IS LOOKING AT GOD DAMN CAR WRECKS AND SAYING “PUSSIES”???????? BE FUCKING ASHAMED OF YOUR GOD DAMNED SELF!
People that have never dealt with snowfall and it’s never on their forecast don’t know how to drive in it or deal with it? you expect every fucking person to be equipped to deal with every single problem that passes their way? Do you expect people to be able to identify every poisonous snake and know how to cope with a bite from them? How ridiculous. Don’t be so ignorant and insensitive. I hate when people complain about people not coping with the snow, I know people that live with a good amount of snow every year and still struggle with driving in it. Christ.

I am SO SICK AND TIRED of everyone shitting on the south about this. I’m a yank living in Alabama and jesus y’all are a disgrace. It makes me SICK that people are saying “oh goddamn pussies that’s barely anything.”

Remember how well y’all dealt with Sandy? Oh. yeah. That’s right. Parts of the north were out of power for WEEKS and you know what the south did for you? They sent people to help you. And what do you do when we get something we’re not prepared for? Y’all point and laugh and call us mysogynistic slurs. Parents were separated from children. People DIED. Students from my university, my PEERS were caught in accidents because they had to get home and the roads were ice and we have no salt or sand or plows to take care of them. So take your self-righteous bullshit and shove it where the sun don’t shine.
