North Carolina resident Stephen Wilfong took to social media on Saturday to hilariously mock the way the state’s media reported the winter storm that moved through the south and into the North State over the past couple of days.
Calling it “the white blanket of death,” Wilfong used a toy microphone to “report” from the “scene” of the winter storm – his neighborhood in South Charlotte.
“People are waking up this morning and saying, ‘Oh my god. We had no idea it would be this bad in Charlotte,’” Wilfong said, pointing to brown grass and damp roads. “You can see back here on the streets — I don’t know if you could even get a snowmobile through this, nonetheless a car.”Notice: The WPP_Query class has been deprecated since 5.0.0.

“We’re getting reports right now that people got trapped in their cars in this white blanket of death,” he added. “My source at the weather station said they didn’t know it could even get this bad.”
Wilfong also poked fun at the southern tradition of purchasing bread and milk, saying that when the city of Charlotte “ran out of salt” on Friday, what they did to rectify the situation was quite “brilliant,” while pointing behind him to a “survival station,” which had several loaves of bread and jugs of milk on a table.
“If you can make your way to one of these…you can get your daily ration of milk and bread to help keep you alive for as long as possible,” he joked.
“And like I said before, we talked to these people at the weather station, one of my closest friends who’s been doing this for 38 years, told me, ‘Hey Steve, it hasn’t been this bad since the last time it did nothing.’”
As of 3:30 PM, just six hours since Stephen posted his video, it already has over 566,000 views with over 14,000 “Shares” on Facebook.
