    "What's the problem with those PEOPLE up there??? Geesh, learn to drive already!"

    At least "Up There",they wait until there is actually snow before they close the malls and stores and by snow I mean Feet not warnings and flurries.

    Good fortune in this hitting on the weekend when people are more apt to stay home.

  • djofraleigh Feb 8, 2013

    Cars will not do well in snow higher than the clearance under the car...they don't plow every well. Northern drivers are more experienced in snow and on ice than southern drivers & the highway crews are more plentiful and better equipped, but I hope they heed the warnings to stay home and enjoy the winter weather rather than hit the roads to defy it. The smart ones will.

    It was on the interstate, people not from the area on those roads as well. And considering it was snow and freezing rain, not surprised.

    LOL - yes, but salt for steps and such, no :)

    "the people in the north are used to this kind of weather and get around just fine."

    and they do, provided the plows can keep up - I'm one of those that lived up there.

    When it's drifting and the drifts are higher than your car, nope, you can't drive around.

    The south deals with hurricans all the time. Let a storm hit Joyzie and... geesh itz ah Supastoim... Deal with it already.

  • InTheNo Feb 8, 2013

    That kind of weather would not only shut down the Triangle Area, but make all of the crazies hit the roads. God forbid that happens down here. With all of the dumb drivers we have in Raleigh, there would be gridlock everywhere.

    Amen Frikymonkey, all the dumb people in Raleigh make it a tough place to live and drive. And of course only approximately 20% of the dumb people in Raleigh are actually from North Carolina.

    A nineteen car PILEUP in the light snow??? Up north? What's the problem with those PEOPLE up there??? Geesh, learn to drive already!

    what the....... "What's the big deal? We had 2 feet of snow right here in NC in 2000 and we survived.We stayed home and waited it out. No problems."

    Actually, it was 18 inches and there were no blizzard conditions.

  • working for deadbeats Feb 8, 2013

    Blowing pretty good out right now. Very fine powdery snow.

    I would hope that these people still "recovering" from Sandy aren't still living in their homes. They are probably in hotels, in with family or have moved on.

  • tiffanyruth Feb 8, 2013

    Man, global warming sucks. Al Gore was soo right

  • tiffanyruth Feb 8, 2013

    According to the many ex-northeasterners who care to post on this site when NC is 'bracing' for winter weather, the people in the north are used to this kind of weather and get around just fine.

    LOL!!!!! But I still pray for those who are not fully recovered from Sandy to have to deal with this, and all those who may lose power and are not healthy to handle this. All New England - no worries, our President and your mayors and governors will come out and thank each other for their great work and pat themselves on their backs and all will be good in the world up there again.

  • Obamacare rises Feb 8, 2013

    Driving up there now. Thanks Scubagirl!

  • smegma Feb 8, 2013

    i guess you have to know someone to get the real news, which is there are Hurricane (not "superstorm") Sandy victims that STILL don't have power who will be hit by this too. nothing to see here move along now.

  • mmtlash Feb 8, 2013

    another difference between New England snowstorms and NC snowstorms is that around here the snow melts within a few days, even if there's alot of it...up in New England it often doesn't get warm enough for it to melt as quickly so it tends to hang around

  • Scubagirl Feb 8, 2013

    Glad it's going to be up there and not here!

    For those who like that much snow, now's your chance-drive on up and visit it.

  • ellengraham5660 Feb 8, 2013

    Where's OUR snow???? Darn!!!

  • Skywatch_NC Feb 8, 2013

    Glad I'm not having to fly to the Northeast or New England ...or going by land travel up to those areas either. Prayers and thoughts with all up in those areas.
