Default Weird NC Weather

Wednesday and yesterday, it was warm enough to take a walk on the beach. Today's high is 33F colder than yesterday, with another 7-10 drop expected overnight - and it's raining, so that means everything is getting coated in ice.

Fridge and bar both stocked. Good book on Kindle. No orders will be shipped until Monday, so I'll just take it easy...

I lived in NC for a few years. Ice storm conditions were the worst (but BEAUTIFUL), I hope you don't lose power.

In my time there I noticed that NC is far enough north to get snow and ice but also far enough south to be only marginally prepared for snow and ice. Thankfully I lived right down the street from the municipal plow storage yard so I was never snowed in for long.

We lived in SC for a few years. The day we were going to hospital for our sons birth in Myrtle Beach, they got - Ooh! Gasp! - one-half inch of snow!

I apparently was the only person in the area who knew how to drive in that.

By noon. it was gone.

I learned to drive in San Diego and I was often one of the better drivers on the road during snow conditions. Ill add that I was usually the best driver on the road at other times, not sure why people drive so terribly over there in general. If you get a lot of snow, please post some pictures for the rest of us!
