Reporter's Notebook: Bring back snow days (access required)

By Sam Boykin It’s Friday morning as I write this, and all the finely coiffed TV meteorologists and silky-voiced radio hosts are breathlessly discussing the approaching winter storm, which is expected to dump a couple of inches of snow on Charlotte. This, of course, is akin to a raging blizzard in the northern states. And in a time-honored Southern tradition, folks are undoubtedly raiding the grocery stores this very minute, stocking up on canned goods, milk and batteries. And you can be sure some ill-prepared yet brave souls will take to the icy streets, assuming the best way to drive in these conditions is to either creep along at a dangerously slow pace or barrel along at insane speeds in their pickups and SUVs.
