Snow Day

With maybe 24 hours notice, central North Carolina got slammed with as much as 0.125 FEET OF SNOW! During my drive in this morning, I saw at least 6 wrecks, and there were times when it was difficult to see the lines on the road, due to the heavy accumulation. I slid and lost traction quite a few times, at least once unintentionally even.

The kids and Jennifer got the day off, since big heavy school buses can't drive in 0.125 feet of snow.

They did normal kid stuff.

As for the status of school Friday, who knows. This is the south. In Georgia, it doesn't even have to snow at all to get schools and universities canceled and businesses closed.
