Took NBC29 till 3:30 PM the day before a major winter storm to post something on their website. Journalism at its best. You are a joke and a sad excuse for a news station.

I have come to expect more from NBC stations. I guess you just want your local news from 9-5.

While I am Ramling.

I would like to thank all my local Tires buisness from Elkton to Fishersville at least the 8-10 we called.

You lost OVER 1200 in Retail sales yesterday .

Needed NEW tires on three POSTAL jeeps for GOOD POSTAL workers that where worried about getting the mail around , I say good because they always HAMMER DOWN they have a thing about not missing your mail .

BUT they are ALL bonesheads... always wait till the day of the storm .. you know the deal .

THANK you Wall-Mart of Waynesboro and your TIRE CENTER

3:36 pm after exausting ever local buisness who had tires but couldnt find time to get them on .

WALMART HAD NO PROBLEM = We spent less time getting 3 different vehichles to Waynesboro and NEW SHOES oh ALL than I did on the phone trying to get somebody to understand how this HAD to HAPPEN .. BIG STORM .

I also spent my LAST DIME in one place I have dealt with for 25 years in Waynesboro .

7 people ( one being the size of a PINTO, cant find time to put tires on but holding all the chairs in the office down .

GARAGE EMPTY Closing time an hour away .

Again THANK YOU WALL-MART of Waynesboro .

Goodbye local tire buisness ( except Sammys Exxon , they would have walked through snow to get it done.... I knew that , so I didn't act like I really needed em ... My friends should have thought ahead... I wont put pressure on the ones I know would come through..

Sammys would have would have went to the Jeeps ....

ANd I send them every good person I know, they don't need the money .

STEP ITUP local SMALL BUISNESS or get out of the WAY for a NEW WAL-MART

I would also like to thank WHSV for blocking half the Valley from Commenting .

I had promised a struggling small buisness owner if I needed tires I would remember him ... a month or so ago on the WHSV blogs...

THEY BLOCKED HIM.... and we could not even find his tire store.

I was gonna give him 4 tires.... NEEDED 12 that I wasn't aware I was going to need... could have helped him out .... WHSV can kiss my white *** too

They blocked me for asking if they could put a picture of a missing Latino girl up

BOYCOTT WHSV all three commenters.

THANKS WHSV = Beat the local buisness down .
