Jeez, we have it easy in Eastern NC. Got about 8" yesterday and rain all day today. Two more snow days to add to the 5 we already had. Looks like spring break might be a no go. I have a 4wd Jeep and know how to drive in the snow but I prefer to stay out of this crap. Way too dangerous with the way other people drive in it.

And as far as Walking Dead stuff goes, I'm all for the burning car on Glenwood.
Right now there are about four abandoned cars just within our neighborhood, where the steepest grade is probably about 3 or 4% (at most).

Combine that with the Glenwood car fire, and ain't nobody got nothing on the third world/Walking Dead appearance of Raleigh today.

That image is currently the fourth most popular post on that website that is apparently a banned word?

Apparently the only time we're in the news is for stupid or crazy ****.

Spinning tires and no traction means a highly rev'd engine, and that's not infinitely sustainable.

Also why the **** is Reddi.t a banned word

This is why I changed my mind about running errands on Glenwood, although I didn't think a car would go up in smoke. Still, I suspect a lot of cars ended up on the side of that road given how hilly it is.

I like it. That must be Charlotte, if it's on 277. Wonder if that was approaching the Independence Blvd. exit. I heard a truck jackknifed and blocked all of Independence, which carries almost all of the traffic between downtown and the suburbs to the southeast. That exit is a mess on a good day, can't imagine what it was like yesterday.

IIRC, for a little while, the site had some subforums that were definitely not legal...by any sense of the imagination. Though the subforums were removed, it must have been what got the word banned.

Odd that 4Chan isn't banned, since they definitely have some stuff that isn't even close to legal going on there.

As a TL... couldn't tell you, and I don't mean that in a "well I know but I can't give that info away" sense, I LITERALLY had no idea it was verboten until right now.

Google's raising a robotic army. And we all thought zombies would be the downfall of the human race.

I'm wishing I had bought a shovel now. If I had thought of that, I would have cleared out all the snow in front of my car today before it turns to ice tonight. Apparently this apartment complex is useless for that.

Hopefully they'll at least delay work tomorrow, if not cancel. Temps are supposed to get into the 40s, so lots of melting will happen.

Also just got back from the store. Lots of cars still on the side of the road.

I forgot how much shoveling snow sucks. Thankfully I didn't need to shovel much, just a path to get out the door and so my car can get out w/o any problems, but still.

And of course, Every. Single. Time. I go to buy a snow shovel, either they are not in stock or they "just ran out of them".

I need to get one as well... though a snow shovel would not have helped today... at all.
