Snow! Or not…

From the “I really hate North Carolina’s schizophrenic weather” files, pretty much everyone in the state got real snow over the past couple days… except me :(

My apartment is the tiny sliver of "no snow" white in between the two bands of blue...

It started out looking like a veritable blizzard, huge flakes falling fast like a snowy thunderstorm. But none of it stuck to the ground before changing over about an hour later to sleet and freezing rain. And then the sun was shining here while points west were still trying to unbury themselves.

So I got to “enjoy” the ridiculously @#$%ing cold weather with absolutely no fluffy precipitation to make it worthwhile :mad:

Even the accumulation maps show the snow assiduously avoiding my apartment — taking a look at the pic and you’ll notice my place is in the tiny sliver of “no snow” white in between two bands of “two inches of snow or more” blue.

As if sensing my annoyance, Mother Nature decided to let a few pity flakes fall around lunchtime :beatup:

I’m slightly embittered by this whole situation…

NYC got quite the snowfall last night and, having been caught in it while it came storming down, I can say there is nothing wrong with a lack of fluffy precipitation.

I may, at long last, have to buy winter boots. My poor white kicks!

Point taken :)

Though given the rarity of decent winter snow in central NC, I still feel shafted :beatup:
