So Many Things To Do in Wake Forest NC! Feb 1 – 7, 2010

Wake Forest NC House ChickWow, talk about an area coming to a standstill!  I know that in Wake Forest NC we have waited all season to see a few snow flakes and we got our wish over this past weekend!  Over 6 inches of snow fell in Wake Forest NC!  That may not be much to others in different parts of the country but it was a huge event here!  I have to laugh when I think of a Status Update a friend of mine put on Facebook:  “For those of you that don’t live in the Raleigh NC area:  We are having a “Winter Storm EVENT”– very fancy way of saying, “It’s SNOWING”

Roads are still a little edgy this morning but little by little we will get it all cleared and be back to normal – just takes us a little longer than the rest of the country when we get snow.
