When a freezing rain storm kicks in this is what you'll see...

Yeah, and currently the Triad is experiencing an ice storm right now, and traffic is still green in some areas.

Heh, I remember during the so-called "Blizzard of 1996," the roads in Durham (other than those on Duke University property) didn't get plowed for weeks because the county's one snowplow broke down. I was driving and I slid off Morreene Road outside the housing project and wound up paying two of the residents $20 to push me back onto the road (no damage to the car, thankfully).

Duke played a home basketball game a day or two after that storm and it was the emptiest you'll ever see Cameron Indoor Stadium. Only three members of the pep band were there (a drummer, a guy with a flute, and I don't remember what the other guy played), yet they played all the usual songs anyway. Even the refs and the coaches couldn't help but laughing at the absurdity of that situation.

commenting on the Capitals clinching a playoff spot.

"That sounded stupid, didn't it?"—Kolzig, to the same reporter a few seconds later.
