Georgia-South Carolina storm targets

February 11, 2014

Once that snows starts to stick and pile up, you’re likely to find yourself looking out the window. And it’s not just the wintry scene that’ll be on your mind. You are likely to wonder when the man with the plow on his truck will visit your neighborhood. In times such as these, here’s the priorities for the SC DOT: interstate routes, then U-S and SC designated routes, and then the secondaries—commonly called farm-to-market roads. And the power companies, they say, they are at the ready to respond to what’s coming. Denise McCormick of Blue Ridge Electric Cooperative says power providers are most concerned about ice and what ice can do to electric lines. Then, there’s the concern for snow. If it is a wet snow, McCormick says, that can mean trouble because of a sagging tree limbs against power lines.
