    January 12-13th Winter Storm Obs

    Been without power since 7am. Lots of trees and limbs down around us. The train actually hit a tree that had fallen across the tracks. Just a small tree and no damage to the train (it was going super slow) but they were out clearing the tracks. Duke Power said they don't know when our power will be back on. I would upload pictures but it keeps telling me they are too big? They are just iPhone photos.

    31/30 Freezing rain Just drove from Kernersville to Greensboro and back to Kernersville (had to meet someone at the emergency vet). By time I got home my car was completely iced over in decent glaze.

    Light flurries on the Winston-Salem/Kernersville line! I don't know the temperature. I'm intoxicated. Snow party!

    Light snow at my sisters house in Boiling Springs, SC and she also sent me a photo showing a very light dusting on her porch.

    According to a friend in Yadkinville she had light flurries about 45 minutes ago. Radar still showing some over Wilkesboro.

    It is currently sleeting in Boiling Springs, SC with a temperature of 45. I didn't believe my sister and niece until Chris Justus just posted about it on Facebook.

    My mom texted me and said they are brining the roads here in town (Kernersville). I'm so confused. Maybe they are doing a test run for this winter? Edit: No brine was put down. They were just doing practice runs I guess.

    Thank you so much for the explanation!

    Is it normal for the trees that broke or are leaning to look as though they were twisted. The bark where they are broken is actually all twisted on several trees. I automatically think tornado but there were no reports of tornadoes here in Winston. Power still out all over the place and another huge tree just fell this morning right by my work (off Robinhood Rd) so I'm sure that will delay power being restored. But we aren't as bad off as those in Florida.

    I'm in Kernersville and we have been without power since around 2:00. Thankfully dh just got the generator working. There are tons of trees down on the street behind mine and the railroad tracks at the top of our neighborhood have trees across them for at least 2 miles. I work off Robinhood Rd in Winston and there wasn't one single traffic light working when I left. Still a tiny bit breezy outside and I'm really hoping no more trees fall. I have never seen wind like today that lasted so long. That was just crazy.
