    I joined My Fox Carolinas in July as a DJ. No not a disc jockey, but a digital journalist. I love being able to report, shoot and edit all of my stories. I'm a proud graduate of Elon University with a degree in Broadcast and New Media. During my time in college, I was a reporter for the award-winning newscast, Elon Local News.

This major winter weather event has been accumulating all day and the snow finally stopped. The conditions on the road are not the safest. People in the University Area were stuck without a car due to the lack of plow machines to clear their neighborhoods.

A.J Hynes who lives near W.T Harris Boulevard says she won’t give up on her vehicle. With a shovel in hand, she clears the path in hopes to make it to work tomorrow. The time off has left a dent in her wallet.

“I’ve missed work for the past two days. I’m on commission. I’m a car salesman. Without work, I don’t get paid. I’m just trying to get this ice up from under my car and I can’t move it at all,” Hynes said.

While some people were shoveling their pathways, sidewalks and parking lots, some decided to commute on foot. Phillip West walked a few blocks to get something to eat.


“The apartment I’m in, we’re moving out so the refrigerator is pretty much empty. I made the walk to the Pizza Hut and now back to the house,” West said.

Others just couldn't stay inside any longer.

Fredrick Cox decided to build a snowman with his friends. He says he wanted to have something to do.


“We were cramped up in the house and it was time to get out,” Fredrick Cox said.

Brent Odenheimer did the same. He took a stroll with his best friend to stretch his legs and fill up his stomach. The storm has left him stuck in his house since Tuesday. “I was bored, cabin fever. I just wanted to get out and buy a little munchies,” he said.

They’re all looking forward to roads getting better, but the time off of work has given them time to spend with family and friends.
