Winter not leaving the mountains yet

Posted: Updated:

Snow and sleet pounded much of the mountains on Thursday.

Enough to get the highway crews back on the road spreading lots of salt, and enough to send school kids home in Avery and Watauga Counties.

Most folks say they are ready for spring and are hoping this is the last blast of winter.

They also know they had better keep the winter coats handy.

It is only the beginning of April, but in the past, there have been major snowfalls all the way into May.
