Biggest snow for county in years

Last weekend’s snow left Pickett County, along with most of the state of Tennessee, covered in snow and ice. With the forecast showing the snow starting early last Friday, Pickett County Schools closed and continued to be closed until Thursday. January has been a month for weather breaking records for cold and snow.

On Groundhog’s Day, Punxsutawney Phil saw his shadow so it’s possibly to see six more weeks of winter. However, whether or not he sees his shadow is more a tradition than actual fact.

Pictured here is a rain gauge taken in the Lakeview Heights community filled with snow the 5 inch line.
