Residents had to chip ice off their cars before heading to work Friday and drive slowly to keep from sliding, but that could have been the last winter storm this season.

Ice coated most of Johnson County on Friday morning after a flurry of sleet and freezing rain the night before. As much as eight-tenths of an inch of sleet, freezing rain and snow descended on the county, according to the National Weather Service.

Few cars crashed, and roads were navigable. Johnson County schools weren’t closed. Less than a dozen Duke Energy customers in Greenwood lost power.
