I think most people do stay in, but some people have to get out due to work or to check on other family members, especially vulnerable family members.
If I was unable to get ahold of my family during a blizzard, storm, etc. and I was concerned for them, I would get out in the weather regardless of the risks.
That being said, I typically help them prepare before the weather arrives to make that less likely to happen.
The real issue is that weather channels and meteorologists constantly make each storm sound like an extinction event to the point that many people assume they are crying wolf no matter how much they hype the potential dangers.
I understand emergency situations. I just don't think all of those people are in those situations. I grew up in a family that didn't care about snow events. They went about their business as usual. Not I. I see flurries and I call out sick. I'm not driving in that crap.
