A half-dozen inches or more of snow fell Wednesday and Thursday in Cornelius. Schools and offices were closed, and most businesses, and most of us sensibly stayed inside. We couldn’t resist a tour of town – and it was a gorgeous day.
We found lots of people walking in the middle of normally busy Catawba Avenue on Thursday morning. One family rolled giant snowballs across the street from a vacant lot to their front yard for a snowman. Meanwhile, Jetton Road was a snow trail Thursday morning as well.
Town officials said town streets were plowed on Wednesday and again Thursday afternoon, though continuously falling snow kept piling up. Plans called for more plowing on Friday.
Cornelius police urged residents to stay off the roads unless absolutely necessary, even as the sun came out Thursday afternoon. “While it’s great to see the sun, please don’t be fooled. Road conditions in Cornelius continue to be very icy and treacherous, especially the side streets. Please do not drive unless it is an emergency. If you are walking, walk against traffic and wear bright colored clothes,” the town said in a statement.
