The last of the winter weather advisories for Eastern Carolina was cancelled by the the National Weather Service in Newport/Morehead City at 6:15 a.m. Friday.

Meteorologist Jim Howard says the cold air didn't slide in as quickly as expected, and that will kept he snow to the "dusting" side of the forecast, mainly only north of the Elizabeth City area.

Folks in some areas, like Beaufort and Onslow counties, saw snow flurries and sleet around midnight, but no accumulation.

    I drove Thursday night (Chocowinity to Greenville and back) and it was not bad. Around 10:30 PM, it was lightly raining, and it turned to snow as it came down, but it didn't stick. That lasted all of ten minutes. Then between midnight and 1 AM Friday morning, it sprinkled again, but the drops only froze when they got very close to the ground, it was very strange. Still, I am far more concerned about this cold spell that has been 3 days away from ending for a week now. They say Monday but I don't think they have any idea.

    Don't people realize that weather can change all of a sudden and go a different course, do something different? It happens! If rain (precipitation) is coming, it's going to come. But the cold/warm air mass can do funny things with each other and UNEXPECTEDLY change the weather prediction last minute. Oh well. Get over it people, quite blaming the media for something 'God' handles!! I don't hear any of you bible thumpers blaming God. You guys all think the weather stations lied?? Come on, get out of here! Mother Nature, just like women, can change her mind.

    I would think that the average individual has enough food in the house to deal with what little snow might happen there these days anyway. I mean, I lived in Oklahoma during the 88-89 and 89-90 winters.. and they were bad ones. Even then we weren't really "snowed in" for more than 1 to 3 days at worst. If you live in an area where it can happen though, you probably keep canned & frozen goods for emergencies (& if you don't, you should). I've never understood the knee-jerk reaction some people have. Reminds me of the Y2Nothing non-incident. I've seen so many times over many yrs. for either weather or political scares, or what have you, people rushing out and raiding market shelves. I've never joined them. I've also never starved over it. This isn't Walnut Grove and Pa doesn't have to stock the cellar with venison for the long winter. lol

    I was very disappointed at no snow but I had a feeling when I saw the sky yesterday at lunch I thought there's no way it's going to snow... It didn't look like a snowy sky. Even though I hoped for snow I didn't "prepare" I did not go to the grocery store my gas tank was near empty (we got paid today) I didn't see the need for a dusting to an inch. They never said it was going to be a big storm they just brought up it was a possibility but they never seemed certain about it. I don't think they pumped it up at all. If they did it was only because snow is such a rarity they knew we'd like to hear about the possibility. I do not like that the DOT pretreated the roads for the possibility of a trace to an inch of snow. To me that just seemed silly. but oh well.... all we got was some more rain something we didn't need. Maybe we'll get even more snow next time then was predicted this time.

    Believe it or not, some adults are worse than the children. The next time just try to explain it to your child/ren that snow is possible, but not guaranteed. Keep up the good work guys. With the way some of you drive in an inch of snow be thankful, and say lord I THANK YOU!

    I wish I had the money that was wasted on all the road preperation for this joke of snow that all the tv stations were saying was coming!! If you dont know it is coming then just be quiet about it. So what if it does come and dust us up to an inch and you dont warn of it, Big Deal! The tv stations in Michigan or Ohio dont get all Crazy about it. I dont understand all the people going crazy over an inch of snow. I happen to agree about sueing. I dont think the dot should sue or be sued. If the roads are bad they dont force you to drive on them. People need to remember that driving is a privilige and not a right!

    Sue you are so correct. The news pumped up all this snow a little more then they should of. They caused the people to go crazy. A load of tax money was spent on a 30% or 60% chance for snow. The weather channel was right on with there forecast. People it was just going to be an inch or less. DOT for it being as cold and the wind today the snow would have blew off the roads. All that was done was way to much over kill. Buying out the stores for supplies. LOL I hope everyone thinks and doesnt jump to conclusions next time. Use your heads. The forecasters have been wrong more times then them being right. "it's going to be weather, weather or not" get real!!!!!!!!! WITN I figure there are more important things to cover instead of beating a dead horse SNOW SNOW SNOW. This probably will not be posted I'm sure!!!!!!

    My daughter loves to watch the weather on the news. She is not stupid and understands what is being said. When the weather man says "tornado warning" she is the first to get all the supplies to our planned spot in the house. She is very conscious of the weather. Thank you to the visits she has had from the weather men visiting her school and yes I am grateful for them sharing a moment of their time with the kids. You don't have to be so mean. And for your information I didn't pump her up, infact I did the opposit. I was just sharing a funny moment people. Thanks a lot. So much for sharing.

    My girls and I were very disappointed this morning about the snow. Maybe next time, we will get a HUGE snow like on the 20th of this month. Brandon, do you think it will be a chance near my area?
