A Short List of Impressions of Carolina

Well, just finishing the first year or so in North Carolina, and have a few observations of note:
1. "I carried my wife to dinner this weekend." (instead of "took").
2. "Something we are just before doing." ("just about ready").
3. "Yes, ma'am". or "No, ma'am". (I mean everyone here is that polite).
4. "Mister John". or "Miss Gwinn". (Men - mister and first name; Ladies - miss and last name).
5. "55". (means drive 45 and don't you dare use a turnsignal).
6. And the weather: I've never seen 50deg feel so cold. (it is this ocean humidity - goes right to the bone)
