For us here in Winston Salem, NC, it's a nice and cool 59F currently. The high is supposed to only get up to 67F. It's going to be rainy most of the day which is ok with me as I'll be staying inside.

In another day of mind numbing #BookBanning madness. The Charlotte-Mecklenburg Schools in #NorthCarolina have decided to #ban a children's book titled "Red: A Crayonโ€™s Story."

Apparently some were concerned about the story of a red crayon which is really blue despite its label.

Apparently there is no mention of either sexuality or politics in the book rather. The book it seems was included in the general academic curriculum to tech children about Title IX issues

In this state, the Gov's party has a majority on election boards. Right now, that's Dems.

So, in the lead-up to the 2024, GOP is on the brink of passing a law that'd upend election boards in lead-up to 2024: take away Dem majorities & create a structure prone to gridlock.

Volunteers count the hatched/unhatched eggs.

Idalia is heading out to sea, toward Bermuda. The image shows the National Hurricane Center forecast of this happening, with increasing uncertainty next week.

Judd Legum reports today on the attempt of the North Carolina Judicial Standards Commission, packed with judges appointed by Republican chief justice Newby, to silence Supreme Court justice Anita Earls, the only Black woman on the court.

Her alleged misconduct? She has criticized the state Supreme Court for its handling of issues of racial and gender discrimination. So the court wants to make her shut up.

The forecast track of Idalia, which brings into Apalachee Bay, then north and northeast to just near Savannah, GA, then off the coast of South Carolina at Myrtle Beach, then out to sea.
A moderate risk of flash flooding exists from Apalachee Bay north into most of southeast Georgia, southeast South Carolina, and southeast North Carolina.

tide will cause normally dry areas near the coast to be flooded by

A crisp fall day in the mountains of Western North Carolina at Lake Glenville, formerly known as Thorpe Reservoir. Located near Cashiers, NC, this beautiful wilderness area is the perfect spot to get away for the day and spend some time with nature.

๐Ÿคฌ#NorthCarolinaโ€™s Senate & House voted to override Gov. Roy Cooperโ€™s veto of a bill limiting #LGBTQ+ instruction in early grades, immediately making it law.

The law, expected to face legal challenge, requires public school teachers in most circumstances to alert parents before they call a student by diff name or pronoun. It also bans instruction about gender identity & sexuality in K-4 classrooms, which critics have previously likened to Fla Donโ€™t Say Gay law https://apnews.com/article/536351cc360a92cdd21f298f6212e6d2
