Students had days out of school, businesses shut down, and drivers kept off the roads when nearly a foot of snow fell in early January.
All of those measures helped county residents weather what the county and state are now officially calling a snow disaster.
The snow didn’t cause widespread damage to homes and businesses like a flood or tornado. Residents dealt with the occasional mailbox getting knocked down, fender bender from sliding on snow-covered roads or bumps and bruises from slipping on ice. Businesses suffered a drop in customers.
