While traveling for Thanksgiving, do you find yourself missing Horry County? More specifically, missing the Kwik-E-Mart in Broadway at the Beach?

The news only tells you when there is traffic, we have no control over it being there. But we’ve all been stuck on 501, wondering what could possibly be causing this much traffic. Fun fact: The Sun News does not own a helicopter.
