WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) -- New Hanover County court was on a two hour delay Wednesday.
The courthouse opened at 10 a.m. despite the weather.
People who had to be in court said activity was slower than usual and were surprised sessions were not canceled because of the driving conditions.
"I am a careful driver, but I mean not everyone is careful. I would have stayed in and not have come out. if I didn't have to come to court, I would still have been in the house," said Chad Hiles.
The New Hanover County Courthouse ended up closing its doors mid-afternoon because of the state of county's emergency.
