The weather peoples are calling for 5" to 10" in the Triangle area, NC. My excitement is palpable. I love snow, mostly because it doesn't come often in my area, and for there to be forecast a sizable accumulation is indeed rare.
The last time we got this much was 10 years, and 6 days ago when 22" fell on the RDU area. My wife, who moved down here from far northern climes, started building an igloo in the front yard of the place we had just moved into at the time. All of the neighbor's curiosity over the structure made for an excellent segway to meeting the new folks on the street. We were invited to a sled party that night on a road that was steep enough to make you run at nearly the posted speed limit (35mph). The course was lit with candles inside paper bags, and there were 3 ATVs' with ski ropes lashed behind to tow the sledders back up the hill. It was truly sublime. The people we met were awesome, very hospitable, and my corn-fed southern ass hadn't seen snow like that. EVAR!!!
I know there's some of you here that live in NC, and will see some of the white stuff this weekend What's your plans for playing in the snow? Know of any good hills around?
