Winter storm whitens area

A swift-moving winter storm dumped four to five inches of snow on the area Wednesday, Dec. 26, causing slippery conditions that led to several accidents.

Snowy roads were a contributing factor when this pickup truck rolled over in the afternoon on Weston Road near Crockett Highway around 3:30 p.m.

The snowfall slowed in the evening hours and by morning Thursday, the combination of plowing and salt had main roads wet but navigable. Side roads remained snowy and slick in many spots.
