5 unexpected inches of snow overnight and no power until 1:00 pm will make you cranky. I wish for you warmth, electriciy and a clear drive to your destination!

Here in NC we only get 3-4 snows per winter, so it's a big deal to us in the South. The further south you go, the bigger an event it is and usually, the less they are equipped to handle it. When we have more than our usual share, we don't have enough salt or chat or whatever to deal with it.

Farther North you probably have 20 or more snows per winter. You're more prepared, you have more snow skills. So your roads get cleared more quickly, I'd imagine. When I lived in Atlanta it was absurd. I really believe it's in the Atlanta Citizen Handbook to stop and park your vehicle at the first sign of snow. The roads were littered with abandoned cars. We just headed to the closest bar, tossed back a few, and partied til the snow melt.

It wasn't long after 9/11, September 11, 2001, that I began this website. I felt compelled to connect with other people around the globe. I had recently heard about "weblogs" or "blogs" and I dove right into I searched for others to connect with online and I found Ageless. It led to meeting many great friends to discuss events of the day. From then on it snowballed. Most importantly we offered one another support and friendship across the globe; finding that we were just a few keystrokes away.
