I spent the weekend in Michigan where 12 inches of snow fell. I already grumbled about that. Well this is the view from my apartment in Cary this morning. So far we have 3 inches of snow and the city is paralyzed! It cracks me up. In Michigan, with 12 inches, people were still out driving, churches were meeting, schools might have been delayed, but from previous experience I doubt they would have been cancelled.
But in Cary, people get nervous at the mention of snow, and in fact, last night, before a snow flake fell, when the temperature was about 40 degrees, schools were closing. It really cracks me up. The hype, is classic as we are warned to not drive but rather to stay in.
