It's pretty funny down here, I'm in Raleigh. The governor declared a state of emergency before it even started snowing here. Right now, at about 1140 PM local, there's about 2 inches of snow on the ground by my hotel near the Crabtree Mall on US 70. Yep, 2 inches and the capital of North Carolina is paralyzed. They don't even shovel my mother's place out until it hits two to three inches. And, it's snow, not freezing rain or sleet, straight snow. Unbelievable.

I was in NC about 30 years ago when they had an inch of snow. Of course being a Northerner I had no problem at all driving in it. The place practically shut down until it all melted.
