County weathers wintry blast

The first major snow of the season hit Jennings County Saturday, causing postponements of several events, including Jennings County High School athletic competitions, movies at the Park Theatre and the grand opening celebration of the Autumn Trace Communities assisted living facility in North Vernon.

And while much of the county only got around four inches of snow that fell during the morning hours Saturday, the northwestern part of the county received an extra eight inches or more of snow later that day and into Sunday.

"The Zenas and Nebraska areas got a lot more snow on Sunday while other parts of the county got a dusting or, like Commiskey, none at all," said Jim Reeves, Jennings County Highway Department superintendent. "It was weird."

County highway department and North Vernon Street Department crews were out Saturday and Sunday plowing county roads and city streets while putting down road salt, ice melt and cinders.

"Our guys worked a fair amount of time this weekend, especially in the areas that got more snow," Reeves said. "The farther east and north you went, the more snow we had to deal with. The good thing is what was left on roads after we plowed melted. Temperatures were warm enough to help that happen."
