There are few exceptions. I have vague memories of the Blizzard in '93 with drifts of snow in the back yard almost hip high (I was about 10 years old). I remember an ice storm a few years later that kept us trapped in the house where we played board games (Risk got thrown across the dining room). But the biggest winter storm that I can remember? It's happening right now.
Atlanta is pretty much shut down right now. It snowed 6 inches Sunday night and then iced up another inch. My work hasn't opened these past two days - and it takes a lot to close a movie theatre! I've worked there for 10 years and this is the first time I can think of that we haven't at least opened for a few hours. We've been watching the local news, seeing the highways covered in ice and people literally ice skating down major downtown streets. People always say that Southerners don't know how to drive in snow. It's not that - it's that we don't have enough snow plows to clear the roads.
Here are some photos of the Snowmagedon:
