Rain, then snow, sleet—and a blast of cold air—all makes for treacherous road conditions for folks in the High Country and into the Foothills.  The storm ramped up as the afternoon went along yesterday, dumping a half-foot of snow or more in some areas, causing schools to cancel for today around the area.  Stay tuned to the latest on your favorite High Country Radio station for closings and cancellations.

A structure fire off of West Buffalo Rd in Ashe caused several departments to brave the snow, icy road conditions, and cold around 9 last night.  The fire was in an outbuilding some 25 feet from the house, and while damage was extensive to the outbuilding, firefighters managed to keep the fire away from the main home. 

Fire and rescue out of Blowing Rock was called to the Reynolds Blue Ridge development off Sampson Road at about 8 last night as a vehicle skidded, and the occupants found themselves looking over what they described as a cliff.  The call was to State View Road, where the vehicle was hanging precariously, with emergency crews lashing onto the vehicle to keep it from slipping off the hill while helping to safely remove the occupants. 

A wreck—initially reported with injuries—occurred just before 2 yesterday afternoon in ‘The Settlement’ off of Poplar Grove Road.  The crash occurred just as roads became really treacherous, with Boone Fire, Watauga Medics, and the State Patrol called to the scene.
