SNOW in Davidson, NC this Morning!

January 20th, 2009

Ok, so this post has nothing to do with Internet marketing, but we basically made huge news this morning in the Charlotte, NC area.  We actually got SNOW!  I hear it was a little worse to the south and east of Charlotte, but I thought I would do some live reporting from my home in Davidson, NC.

The video below shows exactly how bad it was outside my home at about 7:30 AM.  I had been listening to the radio and knew it must be dangerous.  All the schools in the area were cancelled.

I grew up just outside of Boston, Massachusetts and lived in New York for over ten years.  So this video is mostly for them.  My friends and family have been calling me lately telling me about the 7–12 inches of snow they get practically every week.

So now it’s our turn.  Watch the video to see how dangerous the snow was in the Lake Norman region this morning, January 20, 2009.  If you dare!!

Please leave a message below.  I’d love to hear from you.

NOTE:  We actually did get some more snow two weeks later.  Click here for pictures.

  • Excellent Report!

  • Thanks bud. I thought some of my friends would appreciate a nice fun post – especially my friends up north.

  • I just got back from a road trip to Connecticut. Due to your bravery and journalistic integrity in the face of danger, us folks in NC can rest easy, safe and sound thanks to your warning. That snow is nothing to mess with! Don’t tempt fate folks – and be sure to pass on this alert to all your friends and co-workers!

  • They got a little more south of Charlotte. Here’s a picture http://www.facebook.com/photo.php?pid=1918032&l=2333d&id=501499446

  • Entertaining! We actually had some significant accumulation down here in South Charlotte – I mean, I can just barely see some grass blades sticking out above the white snow! I took some early morning pictures and sent them to my friends & family back in Ohio & Michigan. I’ve already gotten plenty of mocking in return from those true snowbirds! I’m sure your NY & MA connections are also rolling their eyes at us.

    That was fantastic! I hope no one got hurt. If you have the foot and a half we have, it would be a huge natural disaster!!!!

  • Great report Corey! There was snow all over my car this morning too. It took at least two swipes of the windshield wipers before I could see anything. The drive to work was pretty scary too. I came very close to spinning my tires once.

  • Glad to see you are here in the office safe and sound, Jason. We’ll have to be careful driving home, too. You just can’t be too safe.

  • Yeah, we should probably plan on leaving early today. Just to be safe.

  • Another picture at http://snipr.com/af31l from Keith Schilling in South Charlotte. He had a little more than we did.

    I cannot believe I watched the whole video…
    Too funny, bout peed myself…

  • fran

    hope you got enough bread and milk

  • Greta Paterson

    Hilarious! For all my friends in Toronto, Connecticut, and Wisconsin, where I have lived through blizzardsand ice storms, this is a must see. Thanks.

  • I hear you. I was born in Boston and spent my youth in Sharon,Mass.
    FYI: I enjoyed your presentation last night even thought it was just scratching the surface!

  • Oh yea, Sharon was not far away. I grew up in Milford, MA.

    If you look carefully at the video, you might notice that I’m wearing my bright green thermal shirt (the one I wear at Bobcat games in Charlotte whenever the Boston Celtics come to town). I also have my New England Patriots shirt on underneath that.

    Thanks for coming out to my presentation last night on Internet marketing. It is always a pleasure speaking at the Charlotte Entrepreneur’s Meetup. It’s a good group.

  • Wow! You are one brave guy! Hey… be careful out there! I think you should shut down for the week like we almost did a month ago with all the ice. We got 8″-10″ this weekend, again!!

  • Ahahah. You got me. Down South we got a lot more than that. Maybe two, three times that. It was absolute chaos. haha!

  • Glad you liked it. Yes, south of Charlotte seemed to get quite a bit more snow than us up here, for sure.

  • Corey, too funny. Love your report. I’m cracking up!! My sentiments exactly. They do the same thing here in Asheville. Remember? Actually, they close schools before it snows; at the report of show. I’m from the north too (Vermont). Right…just so dangerous around here.

  • Nancy Aube

    Corey,That was so great we got 1/2 inch. here in wonderful Statesville, NC No school and no Dog walking. HEEE Haaaa

  • Debi Kent

    I am so happy to see that you also give your mother a hard time. Harvey called me from Garner NC tonight and said he woke up to 6 inches this morning and he thought he was in NH.

  • This is hilarious! I’m on the south-side of Charlotte and we got some yesterday morning. Schools canceled again. On my way from the car to the office I almost stepped in some snow. Close call!

    Wait a minute… where’s your dog??? Uh oh…

    Corey, that was hillarious! Glad to see I’m not the only Northerner whom thinks it’s hillarious when they close school on account of a dusting. I remember in Michigan driving to work and home from work and spinning out on I-94 with 8 inches of snow on the highway. People just don’t know until they’ve experienced something like that.

    Anyway, that was great. Thanks for taking the time to do that awesome video report. I’ll send it along to my friends and family in Michigan!

    Keep up the good work. Be sure to report about the upcoming heat wave!

    Eveybody is talking about the snow in Charlotte, including south Charlotte near the airport, but no one is saying how many inches Charllotte actually got. How much snow in inches did south Charlotte get? Can anybody tell me?

    We got 9 inches in Richmond, Va.
