Snow Accumulating Quickly,
GLPS Is 'Ready'

Roads across Greene County are now snow-covered, as Winter Storm Pax blasts East Tennessee.


“Roads are bad and getting worse. All of them are snow covered at this point,” Road Superintendent David Weems said at 8:30 p.m. Wednesday.


Highway department crews will be working all night plowing and salting roads, Weems said.


“Snow is coming down hard. We’ve covered the roads in salt, but it’s snowing too hard,” he said.


Weems said snow is now deep enough for his crews to begin plowing local roads. After that, his department will re-apply salt.


Greene County was to remain under a winter storm warning until 4 p.m. Thursday. The National Weather Service said the county could see between five-and-eight inches of snow by Thursday afternoon. 

 

Greene County Schools

Greene County Schools will be closed Thursday due to the snowfall, as will ESP and the Central Office.

 

Greeneville Light & Power

 

Bill Carroll, general manager of Greeneville Light & Power System, said his crews were on "full alert" and were ready to handle any power emergencies that might occur because of the weather.

 

All of the utility's operations departments are working, Carroll said on Wednesday night, but Light & Power's business office would not open "until at least noon" on Thursday.

 

Carroll said, "We don't want anyone getting hurt driving in to pay their electric bill."

 

He suggest that customers call GLPS before coming to the office on Thursday to make sure it is open.

 

A number of offices and businesses have announced revised hours of operations for Thursday because of road conditions.
