Snow splits Madison County

You wouldn't know it by driving around Richmond that Madison County actually received some accumulation of snow.

Plows sat, and roadways were clear.
Only the occasional snow and ice covered car coming off the interstate onto the Eastern Bypass would tip you off.

But we went a little further south to neighboring Berea, and the difference was night and day.
The snow was coming down at a steady clip in the late morning hours and left the roads wet and countryside white.

Even further south, in Somerset, a wintry mix of freezing rain eventually turned to snow.
Those out in it noted the difficulties.

"The roads are slick. I had fun driving, but it's nothing somebody needs to get out in," cautioned Ashley Waddle.

Waddle serves up coffee at local Home Brew Cafe, and says business was affected by the snowfall.

"We usually have, around lunch time its usually really busy. But just before the snow was coming down, we don't really get many people."

Even though she would like to see business pick up, she says driving in these conditions aren't worth the risk.

"Be careful and honestly watch the other drivers and watch yourself."
