Yes, it's officially snowing now. I'd say there's about a quarter of an inch accumulated on the top of my fence.
The really wonderful thing about snow in NC is that a mere flurry can bring life as we know it to a screeching halt. Everyone panics. Traffic stops. Grocery stores become battle zones as the frightened masses squabble over the remaining bread and milk. You see, I think there is one lone plow-and-sand truck to be shared amongst all the cities and towns in the eastern half of the state, and no one is quite sure how to operate it correctly. Also, no one here seems to know how to drive in the snow, so they slip and slide all over the place and just make a mess out of everything. And we don't have a train. I wish they would just build us a damn train already.
Anyway, even if I were determined to get to my job in Raleigh this morning, I'm not sure if I would actually arrive. Oh OK, I probably would, but no one is expecting me to at this point so what's the hurry?
