Cleon clings on

Winter Storm Cleon continues to hold Grady County in its icy grasp.

Paulette Nicholas, Grady County Emergency Management Deputy, said that there were between a few car accidents this weekend, but no serious injuries.

In one case, an 18-year-old driver had turned his truck upside down and walked away without a scratch.

Whether or not this stroke of snowy luck is to stick, the snow isn't going anywhere for a while, Nicholas said.

Until the sun comes out, conditions are unlikely to improve and there is a possibility of a cold spell and more precipitation next week, she said.

The best thing to do may be to wait it out.

"It's December," Nicholas said. "There's nothing we can do to fix that."

On the other hand, 911 calls for the month of November showed an increase, according to George Manning, E911 Coordinator. There were 1898 calls for November, compared to 1844 for October.

Manning also reported that AT&T would be setting up an appointment with Manning to discuss upgrading the county's E911 equipment and extending the lease.
