Kind Of A Big Deal
I’m officially losing patience with the NC attitude towards snow. We’ll see a few flurries here and there, but as a general rule we only see accumulation once every winter. By 6pm the night before a “snowstorm,” every school in the county has already closed for the following day, and the grocery stores are completely out of bread, milk, and eggs.
I get it, they’re not used to it here. The county has approximately 2 (maybe even 3) snow plows, so it’s really hard to keep the roads clear. Plus, NC driving is horrendous enough without adding a "weather event" to the mix. Still, there’s no need for widespread panic.
Mostly, I'm tired of hearing about it and talking about it. I mean, I saw it with my own eyes and it wasn't a huge deal. It had completely melted by noon, yet it was still inescapable- on TV, on the radio, at work, at the gym... so done with it.
