There will be no charge for access to Charlotteobserver.com during the emergency declared for our region as a result of the ice and snow. This includes our digital replica of the printed Charlotte Observer, called our E-edition. (For desktop, click here. For tablets and phones, click here.) We hope this helps all of our community get the vital information it needs during this time. We also want to thank our subscribers for their patience as their paper carriers do their best to deliver printed newspapers despite the difficult road conditions.
