12:44pm – report coming in via twitter "@WataugaRoads Poplar Grove behind tomato shack is a sheet of ice – hubby went up on a bank and another truck into the guard rail!"

2:10pm – earlier there were several reports that Poplar Grove was slick. So far that’s the only road trouble area received any reports about.

2:50pm – scanner report that 321 north near Trashcan Falls is snow covered and slick

3:19pm – possible delays on 105 near Broadstone Road due to a vehicle fire

4pm – received a tweet “@WataugaRoads Banner Elk is slick! Rough travel thru there! Everyone be safe!”

4:10pm is this 321? Maybe 421? 105? Neither, it’s I85 near Gastonia. Looks like conditions are worse off the mtn. Photo:Lisa Sides

4:40pm – It seems really ODD to share pics from off the mtn of snowy roads. Remember we are under a Winter Weather Advisory until noon Sunday. Have had a few reports of slick spots but by and large roads have been ok. Use caution as we get hit by more burst of snow tonight. Wind chill values as low as 6 below after midnight, 10 below Sunday morning per NWS.

Brandy Black shares the view from York, SC this afternoon.
