Delays, cancellations and snow plans all came into play for so many communities in East Tennessee this weekend
A second round of winter weather hit early Monday morning, but city leaders, road crews and homeowners were taking precautions. Many still found time to celebrate the snowfall.
“The kids got into snowball fights, so we had a lot of fun. I love snow and I have a lot of friends on Facebook and they’re like, ‘Shut up, shut up, shut up.’ But I love snow,” said homeowner Jennifer Ellison.
The Ellison family ran errands in Morristown early Monday, but they did it carefully.
“I was like, ‘We’re not going to get this,’ and then boom. I got a message and they were like, ‘Look outside your window.’ School was closed, but we knew that was going to happen. We just had fun,” added Ellison.
The second round of winter weather brought slushy, heavy snow to Hamblen County.
“I would say I got about three to four inches, but I have family that lives up in Kingsport and they got about 10 inches,” said Cindy Verschoor of Jefferson City.
One thing that surprised many in Morristown was how fast the snow was disappearing.
“Well it’s melting, which means it’s going to be pretty today,” said Donald Bullock of Bean Station.
While it was beautiful, it did cause a few disruptions like winter weather does from time to time.
“It was cold and it was still coming down early this morning. When I looked out my window I thought, ‘Oh I’m going to be late for work. I just know it,'” said Verschoor.
“Hopefully this wasn’t our last snow, but it was a good one at least,” added Ellison.
