    Look ... are you talking about the Southern half or the state? I mean, up North, they acclimate pretty darn quick to rotten road conditions. We invented "lake effect" snow for the season. It is going to be a fun New Year ...

    Remember: It is usually the GLASS, not the camera (except for moving to Full Frame), that gives you the most improvement in your photography.

    I'm in Illinois too, and let me tall ya, these people are morons. Coming from Wisconsin, no one blinks an eye at snow. I come to Illinois and all of a sudden everyone drives 25 under the speed limit the second there is a bit of precipitation. On dry roads they are maniacs and go 20 over, but the second there is rain/snow the idiot light comes on and they start slowing down and driving into ditches.

    Boy, you guys would really love L.A., then. On a normal, clear day you are looking at either 80+/- on the freeways during non-rush hours or 5-10 mph during rush hours (6:30 am-9:30 am and 3:30 pm-7:00 pm).

    If Mother Nature so much as spits on the roads, 90% of the people drive like the roads are covered with pure ice ... if you could look through their front windshield, they look like this .

    We look at snow in pictures and on Television here in the "Lowcountry" of South Carolina. Wouldn't dare drive with some of our "species" if there were snow. Besides the fact that 80 percent of my drive to and from work are on elevated roads or bridges.
