The winter’s first snow storm was one for the ages.

In terms of snowfall and an extended period of sub-freezing arctic air, combining for life-threaten conditions, it was a winter storm rarely witnessed locally.

The season’s first snowfall inundated the county with around six inches of frozen precipitation.

Recordings include:

Difficult—5.8 inches

Gordonsville—5.8 inches

Elmwood—6.3 inches

Most roads remained iced-over into Monday of this week, due in part to an extended period of below freezing temperatures.

The temperature fell below freezing Sunday night and did not rise to the 32 degree mark until late Thursday morning in Nashville. Many areas of Smith County likely remained below the freezing mark.
