Hot Towns!

Posted July 12, 2011

The anvil is heating up. Summer’s hammer is hitting hard today with a high of 101 degrees in the Triangle.

We’ve decided to do a Hometown Hello series on hot-sounding towns in North Carolina. I’ll get the ball going with Burnsville and Bakersville. In spite of their cool mountain locations these communities carry a lot of heat in their names. What are some others?

We will feature your hot sounding towns next week at 7:10AM and 8:10AM on WRAL’s Morning News on Fox 50. Thanks for your help!
