People in New York City were equally as excited for the Brooklyn store to open. That's a Wegmans thing, not a Raleigh thing.

I laugh at this heat. It's never too hot here IMO.
Interesting factoid about Tampa - the temperature has never reached triple digits. The record high is 99 degrees. (St Pete did reach 100 one time.) But yeah, I imagine the humidity is ridiculous. And alligators.

We live in a modular home on 1 acre and our taxes were only $600 a year.. That was before i got my senior citizen property tax rebate...which has effectively halved our property taxes per year.. Since this home is co-owned the property tax rebate only refelcts a 50% ownership..because the other owner has not yet reached 65 yrs of age...When they do(next year) we will apply again for the other 50% ownership for a tax rebate.
Knightdale was the fastest growing town in Wake County...




Why do people just come online and outright LIE.

The gentleman said he lives at a Wendell address, closer to Zebulon.

Neither is Knightdale.

Uhhh… No, his input was about Eastern Wake County.
And, you called him a liar, when it is even a stretch that his post is misleading, even if in error.

But, I get it. You are just looking for another booger-flicking match.
At that, I will move along. Nothing more to see here.

That is interesting about Tampa. I'd like to see a "Feels like" chart instead but I did find this which says a lot:

No, that's not what I mean to tell you and that's not what I said. No one camped out in Raleigh, either. However, people did line up for the Brooklyn store as they did in Raleigh. Not as much, but obviously a New York store opening in New York is not as much of a novelty as it is for the transplants down south.
