Now how could I let a North Carolina snow go by without posting about it. I realize that snow in The South is somewhat of a joke to the rest of the country as we shut down all of our businesses and DOT advises against any driving whatsoever. It is a novelty here and it causes both excitement and panic. I love it. The ponies get frisky, the dogs love to romp in it, I get a free day off of work and it is a small reminder of my Chicago childhood. It is always gone in a few days leaving in its wake a muddy sloppy soupy mess, so we enjoy it while we can.
