ROCKINGHAM COUNTY, N.C.- Beware of black ice on some roads in the Triad that may have thawed slightly Thursday. Highways and interstates look clear for the most part, but in many neighborhoods unplowed slush and water is now solid ice. When News 2 drove around the city of Greensboro, some of those secondary roads were clear for a while, then turn into a mess the more the crew kept driving. The same was the case in Asheboro and up towards Ruffin in Rockingham County.
GREENSBORO, N.C.-- The snow is on its way and street teams in Greensboro are ready and waiting. City Spokesperson Jake Keys said there was a shift change around 9 p.m. Tuesday. About 60 workers with 40 pieces of equipment will be working 12 hour shifts. Right now, it's really just a waiting game since all the prep work was completed Monday into early Tuesday. If you do see a road crew out, make sure you give them enough space to do their jobs.
Cold weather is hard on your car, so you have to take extra precautions to keep things running smoothly especially with your breaks. A viewer at our sister station WFMY in Greensboro wrote: " I heard once that when it is below freezing temperatures you should not set your emergency break because you are at risk of snapping the break line. Is this true? I always set my emergency break because I was also told that it helps."
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
