That reminds me of when I was raising my own beef in New Mexico. I had a calf about 2 years old and it came a little thunder shower. The calf stood there in the rain and then passed out and fell over. I had to throw three buckets of dust on him to get him to come to.

Because , as a southerner, when snow is predicted you are required to go to the store and buy bread and milk. I don't really know why, it's just always been that way. I think maybe we are supposed to subsist on sandwiches and wash them down with a glass of milk while snow bound. We sure can't drive on the crap so we stay at home.

My wife says that if we ever see snow outside our trailer, we have made a serious mistake in planning. After gowing up in snow country, she doe not "do" snow anymore.

In the south when they get what I call a "light dusting" everything closes, the roads are just too slippery.. True story.

Got up one Sunday Morning, packed up the MH and headed to the Dump Station on the way out of the park, IT SNOWED the night before you see. Wife (She was born and raised in Detroit) is all "Oh we wont' be able to get to church on time, (3 miles, and one hour to do it in)). Road was 1/3 snow covered and that was just the one to the park, once I made the first intersection no snow showed.

Got to church and found Fr had given everyone the day off. Still had Mass though.. Assoicate priest was from Grand Haven MI. .What he considers a "light dusting" on the lee side of Lake Michigan we Detroiters shudder at. .

Oh, that picture is exactly how I feel about snow and WHY I'm in upstate South Caroline below 1,000 feet above sea level.
Home is where I park it!

One snowy night, (50+ years ago...(when I was young, foolish and bullet proof), I drove a carload of other kids 110 miles to see a rock and roll band that was supposed to be playing at a beer bar near Oshkosh, on highways and roads that the Wisconsin State Patrol had declared "impassable" because of falling snow.

When we got to Oshkosh we found that NOTHING was open, (not the bar or ANYTHING ELSE in Oshkosh), so we turned around and returned to Wausau.

On the 110 mile return trip through 10" deep snow, and even deeper snow drifts, we did not see a snowplow, (or another car), on the road.
