HELLO! Happy Monday. Hopefully, you’re reading this from bed while working at home today thanks in part to the 6 inches of snow that we most definitely did not get in Raleigh. With that being said, we DID get enough ice to result in me getting to work from home today, so I’m ok with it. Here’s this week’s Twitter Roundup featuring Snowugghhh, NCSU vs. UNC, and more.
On Snoowwugghh: Raleigh was promised between 4-6 inches of snow throughout the entire week. I even went and bought gloves, only to be extremely disappointed. When I woke up at 9 am on Saturday, there was roughly a half of an inch instead. I could still see the grass near my apartment. I did get a cool picture from Fayetteville Street, but that’s about all I have to show for THE (NON)SNOW.

Tonight watching news is like watching election night. The snow is Hillary. The networks are talking about how early it is, but we can tell

Not buying it, y'all. We're not getting any snow. This is a conspiracy between Big Bread and Big Milk and meteorologists.

On the Cold: Aside from the snow, it was also FREEZING for the entirety of the weekend. Us Southerners aren’t used to anything like this, so, of course, it was heavily tweeted about.
Let’s move Christmas to the third Saturday in February. Need something to look forward to through all this cold.

I could never live in a place that is proud of how they deal with snow and cold. Life is too short for bad winters

On NCSU vs. UNC: The Pack played Virginia Tech on January 4, and absolutely dominated them. Then the game against UNC happened. I wasn’t even mad or sad. I simply just sat and laughed. The Heels beat NC State by FIFTY-ONE, 51, fffiiiifffffffttyyyyy one, yes, 51 points at the Dean Dome on Sunday after Saturday night’s original tip time of 8 pm was rescheduled due to weather-related concerns. It was ugly. It was awful. I am embarrassed as a State fan, but I’m still not freaking out because it’s three games into ACC play. However, UNC fans have FULL bragging rights until February 15 when they come to PNC.
It didn’t matter when this game was played.

On Grayson Allen’s Return: College basketballs most hated is back. I mean, even Cook Out took a shot at Grayson Allen. The junior made his return for the Devils against Georgia Tech, and it was all anyone wanted to talk about for a day. Coach K also officially had back surgery, and Capel took over as temporary head coach.
Overheard in Cameron Indoor Stadium press room:
So Grayson's suspension didn't even last as many games as he had trips.

I've never wanted anything in my life as badly as I want Grayson Allen to trip someone tonight.

If #GraysonAllen would've made that layup while being fouled, he could've gone to the free throw line for an And-indefinite.

On Roy Cooper: We have a new governor! With McCrory out of office, Cooper has officially begun his new job. Nothing like starting a new job with having to deal with a state of emergency and a canceled inauguration ceremony.
