Winter's last blast?

Warren countians apparently learned their lessons from the last round of winter weather as people hunkered down at home Thursday, averting a repeat of the pandemonium from the ice storm just two weeks before.“I think people heeded good advice and stayed at home,” said 911 Director Chuck Haston of the Thursday morning snow and ice event that deposited a thin sheet of ice capped by a light dusting of snow. “I think folks were much more inclined not to test the roads.”There were, however, some issues during morning drive-time as some motorists decided to brave the elements.“Between 5 and 7 a.m. we started getting calls of cars in ditches and wrecks with property damage,” Haston revealed. “We were dispatching one wreck about every 10 minutes.”There was little to report after morning drive-time.
