What's closed for the winter weather in Hampton Roads and North Carolina

Stay home, if you can. Make sure you check with a business or office to confirm they're open before you leave the house Thursday through Saturday.

This list isn't exhaustive, so make sure you check with a business or office to confirm they're open before you leave the house Thursday through Saturday.
