Record lows, snow, and ice gripped North Carolina over the past couple of days. The lows dropped to the single digits, something unprecedented within recent years. Fayetteville and Raleigh came very close to breaking their own record lows. The temps in Raleigh were the lowest since a snowstorm in 2000.
The roads were iced over, making it difficult for drivers in eastern and central North Carolina. The ice and snow didn’t just hit North Carolina. It was widespread all over the South. Most of the transportation out of Atlanta was snarled because of the inclement weather. Atlanta received three inches of snow on Tuesday, which shut down the city.
This has also impacted deliveries to North Carolina, including a special one for an aquarium. A delivery of sharks and stingrays that were scheduled to be at the aquarium in Concord Mills has had to be rescheduled. This has pushed back the opening of the aquarium to February 20th.
While they will thaw over the next couple of days, be careful while you’re on the road. When North Carolina receives this type of weather, it lays the foundation for plenty of car accidents and slip and fall injuries. If you’ve been injured as a result of the winter snowstorm, please don’t hesitate to give Auger & Auger a call for a free consultation.
