It’s the weird, confusing road conditions and constant parking lot dramas in Boone that I’m trying to wrap my brain around, as well. The school isn’t the greatest when it comes to communicating these issues.

I’m juggling conditions in 3 areas for my crew - Chapel Hill/Raleigh, Boone, and Hendersonville.

We’re all in different spots for school and work, and the road conditions are keeping everyone hunkered in place instead of driving home to Hendo.
