An update on the "snow"

NC drivers are nuts!! There were 8 hour traffic jams last night. Some people never made it home and some 3000 school children were still at school as of 11pm, although parents were picking them up all night. The busses couldn't get up icy hills and were stuck in traffic (Raleigh has this bass-ackwards redistricting plan that makes half the kids go to school across town in order to keep school overcrowding down).

For 1/2 inch of snow!!!! 1/2 inch!!!We're supposedly getting more tonight, could be up to 2 inches this time. I can't imagine what this will look like. (Chapel Hill had about an inch)

We've had much worse snowfalls and even an ice storm in the 5 years I've been here, but I've never seen idiocy on this level! Of course, neither has anyone else, and they've lived here a long time.....

Glad I stayed home today! BTW Hubby's school system was the ONLY one in the area that didn't delay or close today. Of course they didn't get nearly as much wet stuff, since their district straddles what was the line between wet and dry yesterday.

Oh my!!! I guess if you're not equipped to salt the roads... gheesh! If I were one of those parents, I'd have been freaking out.
