You view snow accumulation as a game.
In Upstate New York, we snow no fear. (Get it? Get it?) And really, why should we? The major cities in the upstate compete annually for the Golden Snowball Award, which goes to the city receiving the most snow (Syracuse, usually).
Between snow tires, salt by the dump truck load, and a fleet of plows, the roads will be clear in all but the worst blizzards. Private companies even get involved, hitching snow plows to consumer vehicles and charging for additional plowing services.
Up here, snow isn’t a thing to be feared. It’s a business.
