Bring On A Blizzard!

Some folks might think I'm nuts, but I'm looking forward to another one of those NC blizzards like we had last year. I reckon I just like snow!

Bring it on!

Um, yes you are NUTS!!!! I moved away from that stuff and hope to never see it again! Besides the miserable snow, the NC drivers that see it once in a lifetime have NO CLUE how to drive in it! It is just a demolition derby out there!!!

There are a lot of drivers that should stay off the roads when bad conditions are present. Snow is not usually the problem here. We never get cold enough to have a layer of snow. We usually get a light snowfall on warm roads that melts and then refreezes. Then we get all the "experienced drivers" showing us how to do it. Without the efficiency of the northern DOT crews our clearing is slow at best adding to the problem. I just wish more would stay home so that those of use required to be at work would have less to deal with.

Your not crazy I cant wait for the snow to hit also, or maybe I'm just crazy as well. What I am not looking forward to is the road salt.

I love the snow, but we rarely get any here anymore. I am from South Carolina and we may get an inch or two thats it. The problem with the snow here is that with our climate it is always a wet snow which means ice. People here have a problem with that. So many people think they can drive like theres nothing on the roads then they find some ice and its all over. I would like to try being up North and driving in a dry snow. Its cold enough for it to be a dry snow at least for a while. My wife and her family used to live in New York and they had no problem driving, but here is a different story.

We get very little snow compared to many places. But once in awhile, it's a good change of pace.
