Light Snowfall Serves As Test Run For NC Road Crews

HENDERSONVILLE, N.C. - A light accumulation Monday in several western North Carolina counties led state transportation department crews to clear and treat the roads.

It's a pre-event before the heavier snowfall and higher accumulations mount on Tuesday and Wednesday.

A district engineer in Buncombe County said the salting and sanding process went smoothly Monday.   The melting during the day kept most of the snow from sticking to the roadways. There is a risk for black ice overnight.

At grocery and hardware stores, the rush was on to get items before the major snowfall.

An Ace Hardware north of Asheville ran out of ice melt and sleds. Workers expect a new shipment in the morning but there are restrictions. Only five bags of ice-melt will be sold per customer and it is first-come-first-serve.

The DOT crews in both Carolinas say they have adequate sand and salt stockpiles which should last through this event. Salt deliveries will continue through Tuesday morning.
