LOL
In January I visited my sister in Raleigh, and the tv news stations were talking about an approaching 2" snow storm as though it was a blizzard. The next morning we woke up to a dusting on the lawns and nothing on the streets. But my sister never did like PA winters or driving faster than 55mph on the BlueRoute!

I'm a third of the way there already, and I haven't even left home! Must be because we've got family in Raleigh...

As a side note, at least half of these apply to Michigan too. In Michigan, you know the following:

U of M - Preps

MSU - Engineers and farmers

CMU - Drunks

Western - Drunks

Eastern - That's a college?

Michigan Tech - Geeks ... and drunks. What else can you do when men outnumber women 10 to 1 and there's 7 feet of snow on the ground?
