Snow Day !!! The snow started here a little after 9 last night and continued throughout the day today. It's a good snow; good for sledding, for a snowman, and the right kind to be easily swept away from the car windshield. By mid-afternoon, with 5 inches or so in the backyard and still coming down, the announcement came across the TV screen : another Snow Day tomorrow. Tonight, a check of the local news shows up to 12 inches to the east of us in the Raleigh-Durham area, and 8 inches or so in southern Rowan County. Another front, this one with ice and sleet, is headed our way on Sun afternoon. The new semester will begin soon enough. Snow days (and nights) are few and far between.
