To all the Wake Cares parents or what ever you call your selves...have fun with a 3 day spring break! I am sure that it is known by the school board that this will more than likely affect those that complain constantly about reassignments. ENJOY!

When did it become cool to diss the weather guys? Since when has weather been predictable? It's an educated guess, at best. They are only trained to look at the conditions and go from there. Guess a lot of people are bored today.

""this sure wasn't the epic storm everyone was making it out to be." AMEN and NO kidding!! Where's MR. "Local Meteorologist" know it all with his "social and economic devastation forecast of epic proportions"??? As I said last week, while Mr. Fishel was saying it would park right over us and snow a foot, NOT WHEN IT WAS 72 2 days ago!!!!"
Please get your facts straight. All of the OFFICIAL snowfall forecasts was basically for 2-4 inches in the Triangle and that is certainly what we got. The days prior, the NWS and tv mets were showing the potential, which depended on the upper level low track. The low went a little further west and the heaviest accumulations were in the western part of the state, generally 6-12 inches which is very impressive for March and is disruptive. The official forecasts were spot on. You just like to bash at any chance, especially when you said it would not snow.

Whoever is posting pictures to the website article really has a small dog fetish. Scary.

I wish someone would do an evaluation on how much these days that there really is not any snow costs local businessed due to missed work. May make Wake Countly get off there .... and actually attempt to have school instead of calling it off based on forecasts.
oldfirehorse Mar 2, 12:34 p.m.
I love that first picture! The newborn baby knows what he wants. He's pointing at the door saying "Enough snow already, it's freezing out here, the door is right over there!"

Kent Brockman: “Roads closed, pipes frozen, albinos …virtually invisible. The National Weather Service has upgraded Springfield’s blizzard from “Winter Wonderland” to a “Class 3 Kill-Storm”!
mandy picketts Mar 2, 11:54 a.m.
Roads are slushy. I made it to work just fine... bald tires and all! (I need to get new ones....) I just took my time, did 35 in a 45mph zone.... made it safe.
mastercraftstyle Mar 2, 11:52 a.m.
It's still snowing at almost noon here at Benhaven School in Harnett County. But there is barely any on the ground. We had a lot more in Lee County.
Firegal Mar 2, 11:43 a.m.
Its still snowing here in Youngsville, and we already got close to 4 inches.
MsDemeanor Mar 2, 11:20 a.m.
Heard it was snowing like heck in the Fremont/Pikeville area too.
Sue Mar 2, 11:14 a.m.
It's snowing again in Roanoke Rapids.
diwanicki Mar 2, 11:11 a.m.

lma1973 Mar 2, 11:10 a.m.
Im in Brier Creek and its snowing pretty good out there right now.
dogeatdog Mar 2, 10:55 a.m.
When I got up this morning in Goldsboro there was nothing on the ground but water, as we had 3.8 inches of rain Saturday and Sunday. It started snowing here at 9:30 and we have a trace to maybe a tenth of an inch now. We seem to be in a small snow band that has set up...there is another up around Roxboro that looks like it may be headed towards the Triangle area if it holds together.
TRivers Mar 2, 10:42 a.m.
I go to bed and the headline is Fishel says it will end by 7am. I wake up at 10 and look out the window and it is still snowing. Does this guy get paid.
050462 Mar 2, 10:30 a.m.

DougWare.NET Mar 2, 10:13 a.m.
I felt the same way this morning watching the coverage. I was getting ready in the next room for work...but I heard the weather report say that the snow had completely stopped. Then I heard about a 30 second report from a reporter who spent his almost entire report trying to catch a random snowflake falling to prove "it's still snowing".
By the time you get an inch or two, do we really care that a few random flakes are still falling here and there? Couldn't that time have been better spent reporting from the top of the salt mountain at the DOT, or someone showing closeups of the road to show the slush in fine detail?
Commentor5 Mar 2, 10:06 a.m.
diwanicki "by the way we are still getting some light flurries"
Does WRAL know about this? Do they have "live team coverage" for these flurries? Better call them!
diwanicki Mar 2, 9:58 a.m.
by the way we are still getting some light flurries
diwanicki Mar 2, 9:41 a.m.
when I went to bed wake county was on a 2 hour delay which was ok. I get up and they are closed. Not exactly sure why, but when I took my dog out, there was some ice in my driveway.
This is a question for those that were out this morning, was there any ice on the roads or just the slushy mix?
kmatthews Mar 2, 9:37 a.m.
It's snowing in Godwin NC right now @ 9:37 AM :)
Too bad I'm stuck at work!
Commentor5 Mar 2, 9:33 a.m.
WRAL is great for "non-news" coverage - heck they could make news out of rock.....
mstan Mar 2, 9:31 a.m.
WRAL- Can we please stop the non stop coverage? It's 9:30am and you are even checking in with Fayetteville to talk about where there is no snow. If I am going to be at home, I'd like to watch Dr. Phil now and not run through the same pictures and updates for the 8th time now. You are the only station still broadcasting...
dogeatdog Mar 2, 9:20 a.m.
NOTHING here in my part of Goldsboro..well, there's a little flurry that just started, but nothing on the ground or the rooftops or anything. We did have 3.8 inches of rain over the weekend and Stoney Creek is flooded a bit. Guess I need to move west of I-95 to ever see a good snow.
dugmeister Mar 2, 9:11 a.m.
I kinda feel like E.F. Hutton now. cool.
b4jesus2 Mar 2, 9:09 a.m.
I am in Harnett county and it is snowing now
Commentor5 Mar 2, 9:07 a.m.
Ok - thanks everyone - I just found my dog. He managed to get out of the snow drift on his own.
tiger50 Mar 2, 9:00 a.m.
Just drove in from Angier to downtown Raleigh. No problem on the roads - - however, I believe Raleigh got more snow than Angier. The skies look very dark and weird in Raleigh. The morning commute will be interesting.
Commentor5 Mar 2, 8:54 a.m.
I'm out of beer and pretzels. Can anyone tell me where I can find some beer and pretzels? And my dog as fallen into a snow drift.
dugmeister Mar 2, 8:41 a.m.
The obligatory, overused, cliche, 'bread and milk' comment should be banned from golo.
keeprightexcepttopass Mar 2, 8:31 a.m.
I'm up in North Raleigh around I-540 and Falls of Neuse. We got about 3.5 inches!! Beautiful!!!

"this sure wasn't the epic storm everyone was making it out to be."
AMEN and NO kidding!! Where's MR. "Local Meteorologist" know it all with his "social and economic devastation forecast of epic proportions"??? As I said last week, while Mr. Fishel was saying it would park right over us and snow a foot, NOT WHEN IT WAS 72 2 days ago!!!! He looked SOOOOOO sad last night and I sure was sorry he had to actually work on a weekend. Maybe next year Greg!

There's a good 4" at my house - Mebane.
Bendal1 Mar 2, 7:32 a.m.
In NE Raleigh where I live, if we got an inch of snow we were lucky. It barely covered the ground although it did stick to the trees and made everything look very nice. The roads were slushy but nothing difficult to drive in if you took it slow.
dhamma Mar 2, 7:15 a.m.
While I did get a "little" snow, this sure wasn't the epic storm everyone was making it out to be. We got about a Half inch here in Raleigh where I am at. The roads are terrible Icy though.
