Winter Wonderland

A rainstorm and a cold front came through Dade County on Sunday night, Jan. 2, into Monday, Jan. 3. As the temperatures dropped, the rain turned to snow. Snowfall totals ranged from an inch to five inches in the county. The snow, along with gusty winds up to 35 miles per hour, caused power outages across the county. “We’re getting a lot of calls about trees down ever since the early morning,” Alex Case, Director of Emergency Services, said Monday morning. “We’ve got trees falling on power lines. We’ve got Public Works clearing trees that are not on power lines. We have to wait for Georgia Power to clear the trees off of power lines.” According to Georgia Power, there were about 2,780 customers without power as of Monday morning.
