Recurring Decimals…..

Everything here is irrelevant

Raleigh closed down by an inch of snow…..

with one comment

Coming from Rochester, NY, where an inch of snow during winter is considered a great day weather-wise, I cannot help but be amused at the what happened in the Raleigh-Chapel Hill area, the day before. Before I came here, I had heard about people in this area panicking at the mere mention of a forecast for an inch or two of snow or even a few flurries. Now I have seen it.The problem was that metereologists predicted snow for late evening on Wednesday- the winds and the snow-band did not comply and it started snowing from late morning itself. Consequently, everyone panicked and started returning home before the roads could be salted. Plunging temperatures had iced the roads meanwhile – add to that some shaky drivers who have no clue how to handle their cars on snow and ice, you have about 1000 fender-benders + skidding off the road accidents.

Sounds like we are in for some more snow and sleet tommorrow – better do my groceries before everything closes down.
