If you've been anywhere in North Carolina this year, you know we're in a drought (again).  We've had lots of forest fires and really hot days in the eastern half of the state recently.  So it's been both hot AND dry.  Awesome.   And our back yard creek, Dunn Creek, has shown the effects.  You can...
The Town of Wake Forest just announced that this Friday (7/29) Holding Park Pool will be open for FREE admission! I assume this is primarily because of the forecast for a near all-time record high temperature that day.  We're forecast to see a high of 104 degrees that day! The all-time record is ...
Some of you may already be aware of this, and some of you may not be aware that dwarft planet Pluto has 3 moons already, much less any!

Weird and crazy (and kinda creepy)!                               So abov...
I hope all of you enjoyed today and were able to celebrate Independence Day with family & friends.  And those of you in Canada, I hope you had a good Canada Day a few days back! I got to walk in the local Children's Parade here in Wake Forest, and it was fun!  Kinda like a traffic jam of people i...
