Well it finally started to look a lot more like winter with snow falling in most of eastern Kentucky.

The white stuff kept road crews busy Sunday morning & night, but dispatchers say roads in several counties had to be closed due to downed trees and power lines.

In Lee County, the storm caused other problems, where more than a dozen homes were without power for hours.

People living in the Abner Flat community of Lee County lost power just after Three A-M, and stayed in the dark for about eleven hours.

Phillis Lucas, who has Krone's disease says the darkness made it hard for her to get around the house. But with the help of various alternative light sources, ”Flashlights, and candles and oil lamps.”

Jackson Power could not be reached for an update, but Phillis says her power came back just after three in the afternoon.

    We like Jim. His weather forcasting is often less than predicted. We plan our days and activity on these forcasts. These weather forcasts are over stated and is a very large expense to us as we react to them. I expect to hear "better to error on the safe side"...sic.
