Humphrey, the major difference between here and up north is that people up north are trained to drive in snow, have more salt trucks and plows, and have the necessary equipment to take care of their houses. Not to mention that chattanooga is a very hilly area, and even areas like Cincinnati and Pittsburgh, who recieve a fair amount of snow will close due to the fact that there are some places even salt trucks and plows can't go. Yes, it was a dusting, but we are simply not prepared to deal with it here- I was unable to find rock salt for my house, and some of my students had ice all over their driveways. The point of the one hour delay was to be able to see the roads, not to let the ice melt.
