The benefits of electric in the snowstorm made TV mass media news at the time. And much discussion afterwards on Facebook and other platforms with deniers quickly informed of facts.
I agree the majority do not know that a EV owner is not at a disadvantage in bad weather. And in fact has such advantages. Such info and other like Vehicle to Home/Load, are some great concepts to emphasize the added value of electric.
I’m following the Fb EV6 group and many owners are taking advantage of its two 1.8 kw AC outlets to run freezers and friges and fans during the massive outage in Florida and SE. So, there is an increased awareness. I mention it in my presentations.
