Jonas dumps foot of snow on Carroll County


This was the scene on a portion of Bear Trail in Cana over the weekend in the wake of a major winter snowstorm. The massive storm began its drive across the East late last week. Monday across the nation, many schools and government offices remained closed with secondary roads socked in snow and ice.

Although Winter Storm Jonas dumped 12 inches of snow on Hillsville from early Friday morning until Saturday afternoon, Carroll County was actually on the lower side of snow totals through the state of Virginia.

Parts of Loudon County received 36 inches of snow during the storm, which also hammered the Richmond and Northern Virginia areas, and claimed the lives of more than 30 people nationwide. For the most part, locals heeded warnings to stay off the roads. Virginia State Police 1st Sgt. Mike Musser reports his department worked a total of 71 incidents in Carroll and Grayson Counties and the City of Galax from Thursday to Sunday evening that involved accidents and disabled vehicles stuck in the snow. None of the accidents were significant, he said, noting that while most folks stayed off the roads, there were still a total of three DUI arrests during the snowstorm.
