ICE, SNOW STORMS STRIKE COUNTY
Up To Six Inches In Areas
The worst winter weather in some time swept through the county last week, bringing back-to-back ice and snow storms as well as persistent sub-freezing temperatures.
Thursday morning, residents in most areas of the county awoke to six inches or more of icy precipitation on the ground, including a thick layer of ice, which had fallen earlier in the week, topped off with four to five inches of freshly fallen snow. Freezing rain, sleet and some snow fell Sunday night, Monday and into Tuesday morning.
