Today's "light dusting" of snow was about an inch in the 27701 zip code, but the snow fell on ground that had been below freezing for a couple of days. The result was it took me 45 minutes to get from Duke to my house, a trip that usually takes 10. I got stuck once on campus, but between some Good Samaritans helping and me spinning my tires with the traction control off, I got out. 85 North was at a dead stop at the 15-501 on-ramp. I half-slid, half-parked my car a block from my house and walked home.
It's a really bad feeling to be going down a hill in a car and not be able to stop.
