Wow, a state of emergency and not even a flake of snow has hit the ground in ENC yet. I talked to a friend in Greensboro and he said the ground there is lightly powdered, but nothing that would prevent anyone from driving. Supposedly ENC is supposed to get hit harder with snow than the rest of the state. There are two different meanings to the term 'blizzard' up North and down South.
I think the only time a state of emergency should be declared is when it's actually an emergency, like a hurricane or any other event that might cause great loss of life. Snow doesn't fit the bill.
Also, any idea if most LEOs in NC know about not carrying during a state of emergency? As far as liquor sales, that doesn't bother me as much, I keep a reserve on hand just for times like this. I hope to move to another free state after I graduate, hopefully one that doesn't control the sale of liquor.
Merry Christmas, be safe
