Most of North Carolina and parts of South Carolina experienced snow days on Jan 22 & 23, 2016, as anywhere from half an inch of ice to a couple of feet of snow arrived as part of “Winter Storm Jonas.”

Even the Carolina Panthers practiced for this weekend’s NFC Championship Game vs. the Arizona Cardinals in the elements Friday morning, though game time conditions are expected to be clear Sunday night.
I still haven’t figured out if winter storms have official names or if this is just something The Weather Channel does to drive ratings.
Even though Charlotte-Douglas Airport, all area schools, and several businesses were closed on Friday, the Charlotte area was not nearly as impacted as other part of the state and the East Coast which are currently getting pounded with anywhere from several inches to several feet of snow.
Less than an inch of snow and maybe .25 – .50 inches of ice fell at my home in Waxhaw, North Carolina, about 20 miles due south of Uptown Charlotte, but it was enough to enjoy a little bit of sledding on our street.
