Yep. Everything is relative. I grew up in the UP of Michigan where anything less than a 12" snowfall was "nothing". But when I was living in El Paso TX, there was one day when my then g/f told me not to visit her because of the dangerous driving conditions. There were flurries with no accumulation. I just laughed at her and said, fine, I'll run some errands instead.
