WINCHESTER, Ky. (LEX 18) — It was a non-stop job for road crews and Kyle Steele of Winchester. Clark County plow trucks spent hours treating and scraping streets while Steele used a make-shift ice scraper to clear his windshield.
"It's a little piece of plastic because I don't have one," said Steele while chipping away at a quarter-inch of ice on his van.
Many downtown side streets were snow and ice-covered, but people gave the county road workers a break knowing frigid temperatures complicated matters.
Andre LaRocque ventured out to a gas station to grab a cup of coffee.
"I've been out of power since 4:30 this morning luckily we got heat, a fireplace. We're doing all right," said LaRocque.
Tuesday's ice storm proved to be too much for some trees and wires. A big branch missed one man's home on Boone Avenue by only a few feet. On another street, two fallen limbs blocked cars in side-by-side driveways.
Jennifer Ginn's trees survived the ice, still, she didn't have a restful night.
"I was waiting all last night to see for the power to go out but so far so good," said Ginn.
