Durham, N.C. — It has been 12 years this week since a snowstorm dumped upwards to six inches of snow across North Carolina.
In the Triangle, people saw three to seven inches of snow in 2009.
The Raleigh-Durham International Airport canceled over 100 flights and delayed 60.
On the same day in 2005, 0.5 to 2 inches of snow again created issues in central North Carolina.
Icy road conditions caused problems for drivers, with some reporting eight hour long commutes.
Over 3,000 Wake students were stranded at schools overnight because of the road issues.
