Winter Wonderland, North Carolina edition

So we made it through the night. A fissure in the Earth's crust didn't suck us into oblivion. Armageddon didn't blow us to kingdom come. Some smartass might say that Hell hath frozen over, but if this is Hell I have no problem staying for a little while.

The Nightmare Before Christmas, as the morons dopes non-journalistic pretty boys television stations are calling the latest flurry drizzle snowstorm down here in central North Carolina, is for the most part over and we didn't get sucked into the abyss like many thought would happen if more than two inches of snow fell on the Piedmont Triad.

And the good news is that there was actually snow on the ground when we woke up in the morning, which meant that Kaitlyn had some good times tossing snow around and helping Daddy shovel the walkway. Maybe later we'll build a snowman, but it was cold out and there's still a little icy glaze on everything out there.


  1. Jealous! All we got in Raleigh was rain. Dang rain!

  2. It was a lot of fun over here in the Triad. Tough to get Kaitlyn back in the house, though, since all she wanted to do was "catch snow."
