I grew up in Michigan, spent some time in Elizabethtown, trailed over to Bardstown and am now in Maryland, so I can honestly say that I've experienced the exact same sentiments.
In Elizabethtown I was delivering pizza during one of the "worst" snowstorms in 10 years. I found it absolutely amazing that after the first night they shut down the entire city... LITERALLY, I mean shut it down. Including the Department of Transportation who has the job of clearing off the roads.
Incidentally, being a Michigan trained driver (did my driver's test in January with about 2 and a half feet on the ground - something some people can't imagine and is common enough that a rookie was expected to know how to handle) I made a KILLING that night on tips.
As to the "southerners" comment, I learned one thing in Kentucky dealing with snow. In the north, everyone keeps moving because they can handle the snow... In the south, everyone stops because they can't.
But people in the north don't help push your car out. (That was an adjustment too!)
