The same nasty winter storm that has crawled across the southeast for days finally made it to my area of North Carolina on Monday. The same winter storm that drove major cities like Atlanta into a frenzy this past Sunday, complete with snow and sleet and freezing rain, arrived here like a lamb on Monday afternoon. But as soon as night fell, that gentle lamb turned into a ferocious lion and brought my area to a virtual standstill. Hour by hour, the storm grew heavier with snow that was topped by sleet. All of this while the temperature hovered around 27, 28 degrees.
Here's one of the pictures I made of the snow while it was pouring down later in the evening. I just had to share it since it looked so cool. Check out the streaks from the snow during the photo exposure. Impressive I think.
Winter drags on.
