    Most deep southerners (AL, MS, GA) would laugh at the idea of KY being considered the south.

    I am from GA and I can tell you that Cincinnati is not the south. Parts of KY have a southern feel but generally speaking I dont consider KY to be the south. You reach the south once you cross the TN border.

    So you are saying it was just bad luck that I saw 8" of snow in GA last December and the biggest snow I saw in IN was 4" last winter ?

    I must say that I am really enjoying the sunshine lately. I think I have already seen more sun in Dec than all of Nov combined !

    You just dont get a lot of bang for your buck here. Given the amount of cold this part of the country gets, and with the huge Gulf to the south supplying copious amounts of moisture, I would figure 50" per year would be easily attainable around here. The East Coasters get less cold but often get more snow. Plus they get more sunshine in winter too, which is a plus in my book. And before someone tells me that if i dont like it here i should move to the east coast, the answer is NO. Ive visited the Northeast and Mid-Atlantic and I find midwesterners to be nicer. I will say that I do like southerners better but maybe thats because I am from the south.

    there is another weather forum that talks a lot about severe weather. It has a lot of AL and GA posters.

    I think the south is in a better location for extreme snow events due to their proximity to the ocean. Outside of the Lake Effect snow region, you just don't see a lot of big snows in the midwest, especially the area of the midwest I am in. The biggest snow we saw last winter was 4" !! I saw 8" in GA last December and there was a foot just 10 miles away lol. And now the south is getting another huge snowstorm. It's amazing how many cold and cloudy days this part of the country gets, but doesn't get a lot of snow to show for it.

    There are way many more people in the midwest than there are in the Mid-Atlantic, yet the Mid Atlantic has double the number of posts. Guess there arent a lot of weather weenies in this part of the country. Even when there isnt a big storm on the horizon, that forum is pretty active.This forum is a snoozer compared to even the southeast, which also has over 100,000 more posts than the midwest.

    Lets face it, the midwest has a reputation among outsiders as a boring part of the country. And then you come to this site and you see the New England and Mid Atlantic forums so active all the time and the Lakes/Ohio Valley is usually dead in comparison. So maybe there is some truth to the reputation of the midwest being boring.

    So basically if you wanna see a good snowstorm, either move to the northeast, mid atlantic, or deep south. By the way, the deep south also had a major snowstorm in Early December last year with a foot of snow outside of Atlanta. Widespread 10-20 inch snows in NC with this storm. I bet IN and OH wont get a snowstorm of that magnitude outside of the Lake Effect snow areas this winter.

    Does this forum ever have that many posts for a single storm ?

    It's true though. Even with 2-4" events there's just not a lot of excitement. You should try living in the south and going years without seeing snow. The sight of a snow flurry is enough to close schools down there. Up here it's like business as usual.

    One thing I love about the south is that EVERY snow event is a big deal. It's snowing lightly here right now and could see some light accumulations and nobody is even talking about it. That's what I don't like about the midwest. In the south, snow is more fun. You go so long without seeing snow, that you appreciate even the slightest bit of snow. I think people up here take the smaller events for granted and don't appreciate it enough.

    You are not even exaggerating. There was literally no spring or fall ( which happen to be my 2 favorite seasons).
