Great Wolf Lodge with some good deals right now. 40% off. We can go on a Friday in August for $230 total which includes the room and 3 water park passes. Tempting.

RED ALERT RED ALERT

Dude i just ate there now they are closed.
That sucks ! I will say they were not strict at all on customers wearing masks even after the state made it mandatory. Both my visits I saw nobody wearing a mask coming in , obviously when eating they can’t . My first visit I didn’t admittedly but second visit I kept it on.

Hopefully you didn’t come in contact with it man!

For the Charlotte folks:

I'm under consideration for a job in NC and was giving the Huntersville / Davidson / Mooresville area a strong look to live in. It seems like a very nice area at face value (upscale, close to the lake, straight shot into the city, etc.).

However, as I did some Googling, I came across something that was troubling. Apparently, this part of the Charlotte metro area is a pretty large cluster for a couple extremely rare forms of cancer.

From what I gather, a couple things were/are going on. I learned that Duke Energy has a massive coal power plant just to the NW of this area (so they're immediately down wind) and there may have been this scheme years ago (when these areas really started to boom) where Duke was selling its access coal ash to homebuilders, who mixed the ash with the soil under the properties in this area.

It's now being speculated (though not proven) these cancer cases can be traced back in part to Duke Energy's activities.

What exactly is the skinny on this issue? Is it something I should be worried about if I were to move there?

FWIW, I looked into Concord as well, but I'm not as impressed by what it offers in terms of amenities. That said, this whole cancer mystery may cause me to have second thoughts.
