Hadn't seen that web site before. Interesting. Something I noticed just clicking around...Wilmington, Deleware has an average snowfall of 1.9" annually, which is much lower than nearby Philly (20.4 inches) and DC (22.7). They also show much higher temp averages Philly and DC. That's gotta be a typo.

Do they close schools & businesses when the weather gets a little icy or snowy, like they do in TN?

Oh yeah. My wife couldn't make it into work for 2.5 days last year, and I believe schools were closed for 4-5 days if I'm not mistaken. There was a 2 hour delay on the for a day or two following that as well.

I think they got the numbers for Wilmington, NC in there by mistake (2.0 inches rather than the 20.5 inches it should be). See:
