Traffic Cameras Track Weather

Our home is about 6 miles from the Atlantic Ocean. Because the Gulf Stream currents bring warmer waters from the South, it tends to stay a smidgeon warmer here than it is just West and North of us. Going to VDOT’s site I can follow traffic and weather via live cameras from Virginia Beach all the way across I-64. That is what I was doing this morning. Heavy torrential rains are battering Virginia Beach but following I-64 through the Hampton Roads Bridge Tunnel snow begins to accumulate. 40 miles up the road is a complete white-out where only one lane is navigable but the pavement is completely covered. We are just getting the edge of this big storm. I feel for those in the middle of the country. This looks like the stuff that power outages are made of.

Thankfully the brunt has passed us by and we are in the process of digging out of the 4-6 inches that actually fell yesterday (and my boys are gratefully they didn't have to shovel 16-18 inches out of the driveway --personally I think it would have been good for them).

We are only getting rain. I was hoping for snow so I could use my flame-thrower.

The middle of the country is fine - it's the eastern 1/4 of the US with the problems.

My mom, who lives in High Point, NC got a little snow and sleet. We briefly saw some flurries this morning, but they quickly disappeared.

I thought High Point would get the worst of the storm. It is right in line.

@UncleJoe I called her this morning to make sure they had power (Although what could I do if she didn't,lol) and she said it wasn't bad at all. I think Charlotte got a lot though.

We had torrential rains in Florida, but they are long gone. I feel for my family and friends in New York and Connecticut. You lucked out this time!

@UncleJoe My son is on the coast. He usually doesn't get as badly as they do further inland.
