If it comes, I'll have to put a blade on one of my Gravelys or perhaps I'll put a blade on a Massey. Of course, my driveway is about 30 feet long, and we MIGHT get one decent snowstorm; but even that will be mixed with ice somehow.
Years ago, my wife and I had planned a trip from NC up to Snowshoe, West Virginia and spend a couple of days skiing. We actually left several hours before we had planned, because a large storm was coming in, although the Raleigh forecast was for a cold rain. It started snowing about an hour before we reached our resort, and then it continued to snow off and on for the next several days, I think the resort area ended up with about a foot of snow. The day we were to leave, the sun came out and all around was beautiful white snow. We drove into and through Virginia, and nothing but snow, lovely white snow everywhere. I kid you not, we crossed the NC border, and the "Welcome To North Carolina" sign was frozen and dripping icicles. The final 5 hours of our trip, nothing but ice. We stopped in Winston Salem to get gas and fresh drinks, and the service station parking lot was COVERED by about an inch of ice. And ice was all we saw, all the way back to Raleigh.
