Here in Morehead at around 2:30PM we've got 2-3 inches of snow. The prediction is for it to continue on thru the night.
Last winter and this winter have been the coldest and snowiest (sp) I can recall.

Actually global warming is the cause. With global warming you get lots more moisture and with the occasional cold air, lots more snow. Actually its quit simple. By the way, we have about 2 inches just to the southeast of New Bern.

Just got back inside from a little jaunt around the neighborhood. I'd say we have a good 5-6 inches of snow on the ground. It's still falling at 6PM.

It's definitely a winter wonderland out there--as in I wonder why our land is covered in snow...

My daughter is in MHC right now with her grandfather. I'm wondering if she is going to be stranded. She has school on Monday and there is no snow in Wayne County.

Not to rub it in, but in NoVa - NADA. Cold but haven't seen anything really this winter except for 1 snowfall of about 2" and then one day of icy rain. Not bragging, have family in New Bern area and have been considering moving to NC at some point - odd weather systems the last couple yrs.

If it had been 64 and sunny today (in the middle of January) somebody would have claimed it was due to global warming. Instead it was 34 and snowing and it was........due to global warming?

By the way, it was snowing in Wilmington until about 3:30 pm. None since then.

Time2Travel-In my opinion you have highlighted the very crux of the situation with the global warming/sea level rise theorists.
Some view global warming thru jade colored glasses, some thru rose colored glasses. I just wish we all had 20/20 vision.
How about 2-3 feet of snow? This all came down in little over 24 hours. Attached is a picture of me in Rhode Island 6 years ago.
