This North Cackalacky girl hasn't seen this much snow since the blizzard of 1980!

For the record, she was 11 and thought it was cool to dig snow tunnels with Will Barker. It was also the blizzard she learned the difference in the words retreat and retaliate during the neighborhood snowball fight when one of the words was yelled and everyone on her side ran home and she pressed on, getting bombarded by the other side.

Ah, youth.

This is the time of year where many kids discover the evil "throw one high, and while they're looking at it, brain them with a low hard snowball" trick from those who are older, wiser and more treacherous.

I realized that this North Cackalacky girl has only seen this much snow one other time, and that was in 03 when I moved up here! Never got to see it like this in NC, the closest we came was about 8 inches MAYBE twice growing up... four or less was more common if we got any snow at all, and not ICE (UGH, way worse!).
Of course, the results of the storm were still the same, as they certainly don't have many plows when you only get epic 8" storms once every 6 or 8 years... Ahh winter in the south :P
