Jessamine County found itself well prepared Thursday for a much-hyped winter storm that hit the area in the early morning.
The storm brought additional snow and ice on top of snow from the weekend storm that hadn’t melted yet, but there were no reports of major power outages or injuries related to the weather as of late Thursday afternoon.
Jessamine County Emergency Management Director John V. Carpenter said the county was ready for a storm that didn’t cripple the area as much as many had anticipated.
“It’s not as significant of an event as everybody was trying to make it out to be,” he said. “It could have been a lot worse, but it’s better to be forewarned than to have it sneak up on you.”
Carpenter said while some cars had slid into ditches, there had been no accidents out of the ordinary and no injuries. Jessamine County EMS Chief Jerry Domidion said late Thursday morning his agency had not received any calls related to the weather.
