NOAA Photo Library Image - wea03483

North Carolina was prepared for this snowstorm as the NWS had prepared accurate forecasts and warnings prior to its striking. The contrast between the old and the new in downtown Raleigh is highlighted in this image as the old North Carolina capitol building is in the foreground with the new 30-story First Union Tower looming behind.
