I live off of 501 in northern Durham County. Driving into work (to Durham) pre-dawn this morning, gas stations on 501 were dark, and it was pitch dark for about 10 miles south on 501, through Bahama and on down to almost North Durham (south of Mason/Snow Hill Roads I started seeing houses with lights on). Huge swatch of folks w/o power in Durham County.

I think am getting of the opinion between the new construction, unseasoned transplants, hoarding and run behavior, long time of no hurricane clearing weakened trees if an epic whack ever does come

I'm leaving
Do we need another thread complaining about transplants?

What exactly is an "unseasoned" transplant?

Yeah.

But, Ben Noll posted a UKMET model that foresees anomalous cold centered on Eastern US, and potential for more Northeasters than usual:

What's that saying about doing something to the messenger?

Well, I have my generator now and am not expecting storms to lessen as the years go by, but I hate bad winter weather. Let's hope Mr. Noll is incorrect.

drives around in weather

leaves their yard stuff out

The worst part about weather events here isnt the weather but how drivers react to it and the cumlative effects

Good points. People do freak out while driving in any weather here. I still think the biggest problem with drivers here, and everywhere really, is cell phone usage while driving. I see near 80% of drivers messing with their phones on my commutes to and from work, it's ridiculous and I feel like it adds at least 10-15 minutes to my commute on a good day where people just aren't paying attention and are causing delays, or worse yet accidents.

These are not transplant issues, these are common sense issues and occur across the US.
