We've lived in NC for the last 14 yrs. and in that time we've never had 3 snows in one season. This year we've had 3 snows in less than 30 days and 2 of them have been 8 inches or more.
They are so beautiful to watch. Especially if you can be inside with a warm fire and a good book or a favorite old movie. And they leave behind some charming sights.
But eventually provisions will run low and you will have to leave the house or start eating berries.
That's when the charm of it all wears off and you're faced with reality and day to day living. And as the locals will tell you, there is nothing charming about black ice.
But in all honestly, we love the snow so much that we're willing to tolerate that down side of it all.
