We have very little of either here.
The funny thing is that everyone says that Atlanta drivers don't know how to drive in the snow. There is a bit of truth to that, but the reality is that Atlanta is a very transient city, and a very large portion of our population is from the north. Very few people who live in Atlanta have lived here all their lives, or even for a long time.
It is not that people don't know how to drive in the snow, it is that the city does not have the capability of properly treating the roads or the experience of dealing with major winter weather like cities in cold climates do.
On the other hand, Atlanta can handle the heat much better than those other cities. For example, I recall a few years ago in Chicago, when temps starting reaching into the 100's, people started dying all over the city. That doesn't happen here.
Yeah, it's all relative. And even here people get stupid with winter weather. If we have an impending snowstorm people will freak out and buy a bunch of groceries like they're gonna be snowed in like The Shining. Worst case scenario you're stuck at home for a day before everything gets plowed out. You don't need 8 loaves of bread maam.

I've been in Atlanta for 35 years, but also have lived in Gloucester, Massachusetts and Chicago, along with two years I spent living on an aircraft carrier out of Norfolk, VA when I was in the Navy.
