First Drip (2/26/15): Snow fail, Senate fail, more



On Wednesday, State Senate passed a bill to allow magistrates the right to bow out of performing wedding duties if they feel their right to religious freedom is infringed upon. Charlotte's Joel Ford, a Dem, broke party lines and voted in favor of the bill. So much for upholding the law, even if you don't agree with it.

#snOMG turned out to be meh. Forecasters were predicting as much as 6 to 8 inches last night, but some parts of the Charlotte area got more rain than snow. Uptown and nearby neighborhoods got about 2 to 3 inches. Secondary words are slushy, so drive with extra caution.

Police released the names of the three people killed in a triple homicide north of Uptown Tuesday. Among them was an aspiring model who competed on America's Next Top Model last year. Mirjana Puhar was 19 years old.

Jihadi John has been unmasked. The guy responsible for beheading several ISIS hostages has been identified as Londoner Mohammed Emwazi.
