  1. Just sleet/rain mix in Raleigh now. Trees are getting real heavy and the wind isn't helping. Luckily I still have my power, but Spectrum has gone out.
  2. Light snow just starting up in Raleigh near Crabtree
  3. I've been lurking for a couple years now so don't mind the n00b profile. Wake County schools (among many more) let students out early today with the impending tornado warnings/watches. Does this make any sense to you? I was under the impression that schools are typically used as temporary shelters in the case of disaster. Wouldn't that make it the safest possible place for the children? Why send them home to a place where they could potentially have to just turn around and go back to the school? Further, parents now must leave work early to get their children, putting them on the road for lengthy periods during "dangerous" times. Aren't the kids better off having an extended day rather than a shortened one? Is the superintendent making this choice on his own or is it suggested by the NWS/WRAL/Whatever?
  4. It had better not be the best tstorm event of the year! ffs the season has just started!
  5. Yep, it's pretty much a solid rumble of thunder here in Raleigh.
