North Carolinians Can't Handle The Snow

SNOW?! YOU CAN'T HANDLE THE SNOW. Originally from West Virginia, I've seen all there is to see when it comes to snow. We learned to drive in it, play in it, and most importantly, live with it. When I moved to North Carolina for university, it was obvious they never got the memo that snow ≠ apocalypse.

And soon, we are all just as miserable as anywhere else in America.

WHAT HAVE WE DONE TO DESERVE THIS?!

AND HOW CAN WE REVERSE IT?!

In the meantime, let's just all have a good cry.

And if all else fails, drink for warmth.

Nothing like a liquor-blanket to warm your spirits.
