Our snow average is 6 inches per year. Since I have lived in North Carolina, we have hardly ever reached the average. This past Wednesday we received 2 inches, which in turn shutdown the city. The people who receive 'real' snow laugh at it. I do too a little, but you start to realize that the city just doesn't have the man power or equipment to handle it. None the less, work was closed for the day and I decided that I should at least go play in it a little. everyone else was doing it.
