This "winter" North Carolina has mostly been in the 50s and 60s, except last weekend. On Friday we were expecting a big ice storm. Coming from Ohio where snow and ice is normal, I expected a dusting here. However, apparently every person goes to the grocery store to buy milk and bread at any chance of winter weather coming. Why? I don't know.
I was actually taken aback by what I saw Friday afternoon. The way Ohio and North Carolina reacts and treats winter weather is incredibly different.
View from my apartment window. If you look closely at the road and concrete by the pool- it's all ice.
My car on Saturday after .75 inch of ice and snow.
Joke was on me- took over an hour to de ice my car. Look at how thick that ice is!
Over the weekend 50,000+ people in my county lost power. Some are still without power. I had a snow day on Friday and today. Then tomorrow I have a 3 hour delay. In Ohio we only had 2 hour delays so the option of 2 or 3 hour delays is new to me.
Even though it is 50 today and supposed to be 60 tomorrow, I am going to enjoy this "winter" weather.
Have a great week everyone!
