While a lot of the country has been dealing with snow and ice and freezing temperatures for months, the south doesn't know what to do when winter storms cross their path. Right now, it's snowing in Georgia and they could expect up to 2 inches today. Mississippi is expecting up to 4 inches. And most of the schools in Alabama are already closed as they brace themselves for almost 3 inches of snow.

The south is very unprepared for this type of weather. Worst of all, nobody knows how to drive in it either.
I want to feel sorry for the people in the south freaking out over minimal amounts of ice and snow, but I just can't.— Todd Dietrich (@obsidianspider) January 28, 2014
When it comes to snow in the south, it's all relative.

Attention Middle Georgia: It's snow, not the apocalypse. #ChillOut— Unappreciated Pastor (@Rev_Norespect) January 27, 2014
But the South doesn't need your sympathy.

And they're doing their best to prepare.
