I have two daughters in the Birmingham AL area. Their children went to school and were stranded. One of the daughters drives a school bus and managed to get her students and her kids home. The other daughter slid off the road and ended up walking to the first sister's house, where she remains - and her husband was able to get her children home. I would much rather spend a safe day at home than have to deal with what they have had to deal with in the last 48 hours. It is my understanding that there are still children stranded at school in Alabama. The south is not prepared for snow and ice. If we wanted to live with it, we would live in North Dakota, not North Carolina.
