Gov. Roy Cooper delivers a briefing on North Carolina’s coronavirus pandemic response Monday, Jun. 15, 2020, at the NC Emergency Operations Center in Raleigh, N.C.

Hunker down ya’ll!  The weather forecasters all agree today’s weather is going to be nasty no matter where you are.  Some of us getting rain and many areas of North Carolina could get up to 1/2 inch of ice.

Governor Roy Cooper has already declared a state of emergency.  This will hopefully allow utility companies time to have repair crews in place.  Duke Energy says there could be up to one million power outages. 5,400 workers are on standby.

If you haven’t done so yet, be prepared with batteries, wood for a fireplace if you have one, and possibly candles;  anything you might need in case the power does go out.
