For those live on the Midwest out other snowy areas, don't compare your situation with the rest of the country.
There are states that may experience snow ocasionally or no more than a few inches at a time. These areas are not equipped for snow removal like other states (i.e. Carolinas, Georgia, even DC at times).
So it's nice to exchange war stories about how you drove through a 6 foot snow block in your Toyota Camry, but that's what you're used to! I'd be giving you the side eye if you didn't know how to drive in snow.
