A tough day of driving for residents in eastern end of North Carolina.
  A day-long snowfall has kept snow plows busy and motorists looking over
their  shoulders to make sure the other guy going to stop in time.  Before
it's over  later this evening...Greenville, North Carolina officials think
they will have  received nearly 5-inches of snow.  A combination of cold air
and moisture from  the Atlantic have teamed up to give the eastern third of
North Carolina a rare  snow storm.  Police have been busy most of the day
handling minor accidents.  Safety officials are concerned the continuing
sub-freezing conditions will mean  slippery driving through Wednesday morning
before the temperatures rise above  the freezing mark.
