Snow days

We have woken up to snow ('icy roads' may be more appropriate terminology) two mornings in a row in Asheville! Accumulation varied widely around town and the rest of WNC, but even seeing just a light dusting of white covering everything both mornings has been a beautiful surprise.

A big issue has been school closings, especially for those in the Asheville City school district, where sunny skies have helped clear the roads by mid-morning. Kind of makes you wish you were a kid again - even when a 'snow' day didn't mean you got to build a snowman ... it was still a day off!
