The National Snow and Ice Data Center defines a blizzard as a "violent winter storm, lasting at least 3 hours, which combines below freezing temperatures and very strong wind laden with blowing snow that reduces visibility to less than 1 km." If a blizzard is bad enough, snow plows and salt trucks won't even brave the elements.

Imo it's an arrogant attitude, and an attitude that says that if we give them tech first, then everything else will follow. "So you're infrastructure is down and disorder is everywhere and there's no food or fuel.... No problem! Just draw upon that knowledge that you downloaded when you still had internet! @Eric Geller: More like a monetary problem. I don't know about that. Technology can be used as a multiplier to better utilize the resources that already exist. Think of this as the lifehacker for the rest of the world.
