Clay County Highway Department workers plowed and plowed and plowed Wednesday.
As of Thursday morning, the results looked good.
Highway Department Superintendent Pete Foster told The Brazil Times road conditions were in much better shape Thursday morning, adding his crew was out until 7:30 p.m., Wednesday, plowing and grading roads.
"It's looking pretty good," Foster said. "By the end of (Thursday), I think we'll have all of the roads open.
"You can get around. Everything is passable, but we're still plowing."
Foster added Lewis Township was hit quite hard with the snowfall that began Tuesday and lasted through Wednesday afternoon.
"It seemed like it was a little deeper there," Foster said.
Clay County Emergency Management Director Bryan Husband said he estimated the county received 10-12 inches of snowfall.
"I knew we had at least 11 inches," he said.
Husband said the southern portion of the county tallied at least 12 inches of snow in 2005, but agreed with a state assessment that was reported Wednesday that the two-day snowfall was the most the central portion of the state had seen since 1996.
Husband lives in the southern portion of Clay County and said the roads are in good shape.
"The main roads have been cleared," he said. "The issue anytime you have snow is it goes to the side of the road.
"Now, driveways are full. People are going to have some driveway issues."
Husband said surrounding counties are still under emergency advisories, including Greene, Sullivan and Owen, but Clay County lifted its Level 2 Emergency Wednesday afternoon.
County officials declared a Level 2 Emergency early Wednesday, which restricts travel for motorists.
A Level 1 Emergency urges motorists to be careful, while a Level 3 Emergency prohibits travel of any kind.
He also said he was not aware of any power outages in the county as a result of the heavy snowfall.
"I had no reports," he said, "but I'm not saying we didn't have any."
Reports did come, however, to The Brazil Times' office Thursday afternoon of a possible power outage near the Staunton area, that took place between 7-9:30 a.m., Wednesday.
