WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) — As the 2012 comes to a close, that means winter starts to really ramp up. A great way to combat those long, cold nights is with a nice up of hot cocoa.

In this edition of Kitchen Scoop, Alicia Ross shows us how to make our own hot cocoa mix that’s ready to go when the winter chill hits.

I-40 lanes reopen in NC after rock slide cleanup

Tuesday, December 25th, 2012

WAYNESVILLE, N.C. (AP) – All lanes are open on Interstate 40 in the North Carolina mountains toward Tennessee after a rock slide over the weekend got cleaned up.

A state Department of Transportation spokeswoman confirmed Monday the two westbound lanes of I-40 in Haywood County are open after workers moved about three dump-truck loads worth of rocks that fell from a slope onto the road’s shoulder.

Traffic was narrowed to one lane near mile marker 7 so the debris that fell Friday night could be removed safely. The second lane re-opened Saturday evening.

NC DOT is telling motorists they may see above-average traffic congestion during the holidays, especially in areas near Asheville, Winston-Salem, Charlotte, Fayetteville and Raleigh from midday until the early evening.
