CHATTANOOGA, TN (WRCB) - As the snow fell there is always the risk of driving in slick conditions. Thankfully roads have stayed pretty clear and few accidents have been reported, but it certainly hasn't gone unnoticed.
We talked to folks throughout the region. Some were excited to wake up this morning to a white covered lawn, some dreaded driving and stocked up at the grocery store and others say they just don't know what to make of the mixed bag of weather conditions we've had this winter.
Viewer pictures are pouring in from Pikeville to Turtletown in Tennessee, to New Salem, Georgia to Sand Mountain in Alabama, and over to Murphy, North Carolina.
Channel 3 was live Saturday morning on Lookout and Signal mountains as the snow accumulated.
"It's been snowing like this for the like two days," Signal Mountain resident Logan Buck said.
Workers at Pruett's Signal Mountain Market say they were busy Friday night with people stocking up on milk and bread ahead of the snow, but say foot traffic has slowed Saturday. Local gas stations say the same.
Some people are hoping the snow keeps falling.
"I like it. I wish there was more of it. If it's going to snow, I wish there'd be a little more to play in," Buck said.
"I like it. I think it's beautiful," Signal Mountain resident Keith Thompson said.
Roads have stayed pretty clear for the most part, but others, like Jerry White want it to melt ASAP.
"I'd rather be where there is no snow. If it was up to me, we'd never have snow," Hixson resident Jerry White said.
From sunny to windy and snowy, many folks say it's just hard to keep up with what mother nature is doing in the Tennessee Valley this winter.
"It's just weird really. Hot, cold, hot, cold. I don't know what to do with it," Anderson said.
"It's been so up and down," Thompson said.
