Ridge road in @CityofRoxboro tonight is looking pretty good but issues with secondary streets have forced @PersonCoSchools to close tomorrow. @ChiefDavidHess thanks public for heeding advice to stay off roads if possible. #ABC11 pic.twitter.com/pcHMqdXInO— Josh Chapin (@JoshChapinABC11) March 13, 2018
"Well I was just trying to make tracks so that I could get out in the morning for work," said Kim McCowan, a nurse, who got stuck in her Roxboro driveway. "It's just ice and I can't go anywhere. I'm also originally from Buffalo so I know what to do and I could only go up halfway, and I was starting to slide off the driveway. I probably went up and down four or five times. I drove to college through the snow with it up to my bumper. It's different here."
Snow snow snow. Can’t believe my eyes but here in @CityofRoxboro we’re seeing a couple inches of. Patrolling the area for you tonight. Please be careful if you’re on the roads. #ABC11 #winterwx pic.twitter.com/fTux7CGoxJ— Josh Chapin (@JoshChapinABC11) March 12, 2018
It was a different but not unusual day in Person County where plows treated roads while neighbors shoveled and, for the most part, stayed home.
"It is absolutely a tremendous help," said David Hess, chief of police in Roxboro. "Mother Nature does her job, and we're able to do ours - mainly the public does theirs by heeding our advice, and I'm thankful for that."
Person County Schools are closed Tuesday.
