    I see you are from South Carolina. I'm in Jacksonville, North Carolina this week visiting my daughter. Sure is beautiful countryside up here and the weather is perfect.

    Yeah, it is nice up there. Where I live its not that great.. We do have some beautiful swamps;), if you ever have the chance you should stop by and we can take you to Santee, only when its warm though, thats when Santee is awesome...

    North Carolina is an awesome place to be this time of year...

    Not like it does in ohio, They shut down the state, I mean closing banks and telling state employee's to go home when they even think its going to snow, They forcasted like 1/2in of snow one year and dad had to stay at work late to put chains on the trucks.. I have lived here since December of 2001, the most I have ever seen was like an 1in. Its ridiculous how bad people are about a little snow..

    Living in North Carolina for everyday day of my life and can agree with that comment. The most snow I have ever seen here was 18" and I mean the city, 1 million + people was shut down for a week. I mean for the first 2 or 3 days Nothing happened, I live on a main road and it was 3 days before the first grader came down the road.
    Might have helped if we had more than 12 plows and 1000 tons of salt.
    It's been pretty mild here for that last few winters, last winter I remember temps reaching 70 degrees in Dec.

    For some reason I think were going to have a bad winter this year, don't know why, just have a feeling.
