Warren County roads were in pretty good shape, according to Road Superintendent Levie Glenn, less than 24 hours after the county received between 4-7 inches of snow Sunday night and Monday morning.

“We started working at 2:30 a.m. Monday morning and the roads are looking pretty good for the amount of snow we’ve received,” said Glenn around 1 p.m. Monday afternoon. “It was a heavy, wet snow so we’re dealing with a lot of downed limbs in the roadway. We’ve probably answered about 30 of those calls. It’s been a good, pushing snow. We’ve been able to use our snowplows and get it off the road. It’s a pretty snow to start 2022.”

McMinnville Public Works reported Monday around 1 p.m. that city roads were clear and weren’t presenting much trouble for motorists. The city began salting intersections and on hills around 3:30 a.m. Monday to keep motorists from sliding and that method was effective.

There were calls for Warren County to get much less snow with weather apps indicating we would receive 1-2 inches.

“I’d say they missed their forecast,” said Glenn.

Standard employees measured 4 inches of snow outside the newspaper office Monday morning. Several Facebook posts showed people measuring snow outside their home with the high total reported at 7 inches.
