'Snow' Going in Southeastern Kentucky

By Phil Pendleton  | 

About two inches fell in Clay County Wednesday and some people soon found out how hazardous it was to be out in it.

Rollin Roberts admits he should have stayed home on Wednesday.

“I didn't even have any business out today, but I thought I'd go out and see how the roads were,” Roberts said from the cab of his truck that had just slid into a ditch on Greasy Road. “Well, [I] went over the curve here. And couldn't stop, and it just went to the right and over the ditch. I've been in this ditch before, though a couple of years back.”

The snow in Southeastern Kentucky surprised some.

About 20 miles away in Laurel County there's merely a dusting. But in Clay, traveling was treacherous.

“It's awful, man. It's slick up here. Don't come out if you don't have to,” said Tony Buttery.

The good news is that both local and state police said that there have only been a few minor accidents and none of them involved injuries.
