Ditto on "kids will be out all week". After dark, you'll be able to do some ice skating on our road. We're in eastern Durham county. The nightly temps well below freezing are going to slow the clearing process. Plus, at some point, the county sent something to "plow" which only managed to smooth and pack the snow into a sheet of ice. I prefer the old days when the county never plowed *anything* other than main roads. At least then the ruts cut by the local 4x4s melted down to pavement fairly quickly and you could drive along in those fairly well.

I am at the northern tip of Wake County (Falls Lake Area) and it's actually not too bad. I'm betting on Tues with a 2-hr delay!

I'm a teacher so I hope this is the case. I don't mind a day, more than that and it cuts into spring break or you have to go on a Saturday.

How much snow fell? I have been working in Raleigh for the past month but returned to CT Friday to meet the moving company. We move into our new home in Raleigh next weekend. It appears we missed the big storm in Raleigh by a week

I'm in Willow Spring and we got 2 and 3/4 inches. Black ice is our main issue now, as it isn't melting.

I drove up the Cary Parkway, Chapel Hill Rd./NC 54 to Miami Blvd. ramp to I40E, to Exit 290/Chapel Hill Rd/NC 54 to Maynard to Evans to Cary Parkway.

I had wanted to exit onto Exit 287, N Harrison Ave, but the ramp was closed as they had equipment clearing the road. So I proceeded to the next exit, Chapel Hill Rd again.


Cary Parkway was wet and dry, to the pavement.
Chapel Hill Rd was very good in Wake County, wet and dry, except for the shaded portion past the Morrisville Fire Station was pretty slushy.
Chapel Hill Rd was untouched in Durham County. Covered.
I-40 was dry to the pavement, except wet in a couple of shaded spots under overpasses.
Chapel Hill Rd back into Maynard was very good shape. Wet and dry.
Maynard was dry.
Evans was wet.

Neighborhood streets are covered.

In the morning, the wet areas will be sheets of ice. Roads will be passable, IMO. But, have your Egg McMuffin in the parking lot, not as you drive, and drive slow as the road conditions will change abruptly as you proceed.

This makes so much more sense!! I'm a teacher in Johnston County, and we pull from our Spring Break right away. I've already lost one day (no complaints!) but hoping for no more after that.

This is pretty cool I think. I just moved here from Pittsburgh and never have our schools had delays or closing 2 days after a snow/ice storm. The other thing that is interesting is how the entire county's schools follow the same delay/closing information, whereas in Pittsburgh, they make you watch the news and sit through a listing of hundreds of schools in the county to see if yours is closed. So I'm loving this!
