It is a different world here when it snows.
I went to high school in Northern Minnesota. School very rarely closed for ANYTHING!
But here in North Carolina we have hills, we have country roads that don't get much sun, we don't use snow tires and we certainly don't have any use for snow machines. So, yes, most schools and many businesses close down. Which gives us the opportunity to have some fun during a short life time span of the beautiful white stuff!
It may seem silly to those who live in the north but I am one of the many who will....check the weather every few minutes, look outside, use social media to see who sees flakes yet, make sure I have enough tea and coffee in the house...forget the normal bread and milk...lol and then - of course make sure the sleds are where we can get to them! And wait - and - that is what I, along many of my snow loving companions, are doing right now!
