Another winter storm that started on Sunday afternoon and consisted of sleet, ice and snow has again caused many closures in Trigg County and the surrounding areas, but there was very little ice storm damage.

Rick Shanklin, Warning Coordination Meteorologist for the National Weather Service in Paducah, said the county received approximately 3 inches of snow, 1.5 inches of sleet and abot two-tenths of an inch of ice.

“The storm is over and the process of digging out has begun,” Christian County Emergency Weather Coordinator David Powell said on Monday morning. “The snow plows are out trying to get roads drivable. Everything is still very slick if you can even get out of your driveway. Best I can tell, I ended up with about 7 to 8 inches of sleet and snow accumulation. Winds have piled drifts up to 2 feet in some spots.”

Powell said he can’t remember ever seeing this much sleet.
