We got nothing here in SC where I live. But I did travel to Hendersonville to my Dad's house today and it was bad up there. It had started to clear up some by the time I came home, but I don't think Laraine and Tom left until about 2 or a little after. She called me when they got on the road finally. They had to shovel their way out!!!
