New tag, a hotel, inn, or bed+breakfast in a building older that 100 years. The Carolina Hotel, built in 1895.

Wb57 must not have been watching this. He is close to a B&B that meets the requirement.

I saw it had been grabbed, but couldn't think of one off the top of my head. Checking now...

Edit: Can't find the exact age of it, but I'm guessing you're referring to the Oakwood Inn. Also see that the next four days here have snow in the forecast!
F'ing global warming!!!

I'm glad you said something about snow. I thought it was coming in on Tuesday, but looked at the forecast and saw lunchtime today. I was about to take the Husky into work today.

It's amazing how the forecast seems to be COMPLETELY changing on a daily basis. When I checked on Saturday, the only non-clear day this coming week was Wednesday. Sunday shows it snowing, freezing rain all week. This morning, it looks worse. Perhaps I need to drop the local news website off the list of weather guessers.

There is an old saying here in NC. "If you don't like the weather, hang around, it will change. WRAL is usually pretty good. A little better than the PA groundhog

Oakwood Inn.
Built 1871 as the Raynor-Stronach house.
converted to a b&b and opened as Raleigh's first b&b. June 1 1984.

Actually, that's an "old saying" every place I've ever lived...

WRAL has gotten increasingly ridiculous over the last several years. Yesterday, they had it as clear/partly cloudy most of the week with temps around 50. I saw one day that looked sketchy for riding. As of last night, it was spun 180 degrees on its axis.

And these are the folks we're supposed to trust for forecasts 50-100 years out. I'll be impressed once they can get close 12 hours out.

I really need a new knobbie on the DR with this messy weather in the forecast. Did get forks and brakes installed last night.
