  • Tuesday morning snow brings ‘Every bit of 6 inches’

    While county roadways were mostly clear of drivers Tuesday morning, snow plow and salt crews were out in force — including Henry County Judge-Executive John Logan Brent.

    Working one of the county’s salt trucks, affectionately nicknamed the ‘salt shaker,’ Brent said the county already had received “every bit of the six inches” forecast.

    By midmorning, the snow was falling so hard and fast that roads that already had been plowed didn’t look it.

    Another local business has closed its doors, citing the poor economic climate.

    Though Hancock and Waits Chrysler was spared the axe when Chrysler shut down nearly 800 dealerships in 2009, the business closed its doors for good last Thursday.
