One photo seems to sum up the latest round of winter weather in Raleigh.

The photo, taken by Lindsay Webb, shows cars scattered about Glenwood Avenue near the Angus Barn Wednesday afternoon. But this isn't just any photo of stranded or stuck cars on a snowy road in the South.

A car is fully engulfed in flames.

"The hood was smoking and it just took a moment and the entire vehicle was engulfed within minutes," Webb said. "That was the moment where you're like, ‘Wow, this is going to take a while.'"

Webb originally posted the photo on Facebook.

But the image has gone viral, showing up all over the Internet including sites like CNN and the Huffington Post. It has also turned up in meme form on Reddit.
