When I think "Charlotte skyline"....I don't think of anything. Because it has one of the most forgettable skylines ever. Nice crown on that tallest one, though.

I wouldn't say Charlotte is forgettable. It's the most significant (or certainly the most memorable) skyline from Philly to Atlanta in the East Coast States.

BTW, here's a list of the current supertalls in the USA.

Complete
1. 1 WTC (NYC) -1776 ft
2. Willis Tower (Chicago) – 1450 ft
3. Trump Intl Hotel Tower (Chicago) – 1389 ft
4. Empire State Building (NYC) – 1250 ft
5. Bank of America Tower (NYC) – 1200 ft
6. Aon Center (Chicago) – 1136 ft
7. John Hancock Center (Chicago) – 1128 ft
8. Chrysler Building (NYC) – 1050 ft
9. New York Times Tower (NYC) – 1050 ft
10. Bank of America Plaza (Atlanta) – 1040 ft
11. US Bank Tower (LA) – 1020 ft
12. Franklin Center (Chicago) – 1007 ft
13. One 57 (NYC) – 1004 ft
14. 600 Travis Street (Houston) – 1002 ft
15. Two Prudential Plaza (Chicago) - 995 ft (303 m)
16. Wells Fargo Plaza (Houston) – 992 ft (302 m)

U/C

1. 225 west 57th street (NYC) – 1775 ft
2. 432 Park Avenue (NYC) – 1396 ft [topped out]
3. 30 Hudson Yards (NYC) – 1286 ft
4. 3 WTC (NYC) – 1171 ft
5. CITC Philadelphia – 1121 ft
6. Wilshire Grand Redevelopment LA – 1100 ft
7. Salesforce Tower (SF) – 1070 ft

including topped-out towers...

NYC - 7 w/ 3 under construction
Chicago - 6
Houston - 2
Los Angeles - 1 w/ 1 under construction
Atlanta - 1
Philadelphia - 0 w/ 1 under construction

The Las Vegas pic is all real. The thing on the bottom left is a shopping center called the Crystals. It was designed by Daniel Libeskind, who also designed a very similar building in Toronto.

Dallas can get pretty cold in winter, so it's definitely not unheard of to get snow. It doesn't happen all that often, maybe once or twice a year. Ice storms are more common, another reason I'd rather not live in Dallas.
