The ice and snow began to fall late Friday night, leaving Ansonians to wake up to a frozen white surface outside on Saturday morning. A small amount of ice and fine snow continued to fall during the day but most accumulated in the early morning hours Saturday.
There were no power outages reported in the county and no injuries or fatalities reported in connection with the storm.
"We had about 20 minor wrecks between Saturday and Sunday," said Rodney Diggs, Anson County's director of emergency management. "There were a couple of wrecks that people were transported from but there were no life-threatening injuries."
Anson County Schools and some businesses were closed on Monday, due to icy roads that remained in rural areas.
To prepare for the storm, Diggs said he met with key county agencies like Department of Social Services and the Sheriff's Office, as well as the American Red Cross, in the days leading up to the storm, just in case there was a dire emergency. He was also on conference calls with the state and National Weather Service at least once a day.
More snow is forecast for Anson County this weekend, with the National Weather Service calling for a mix rain and snow in the early morning hours on Friday, changing over to rain by Friday night.
"We're asking for people to stay home and not travel," Diggs said. "We fared luckily this past storm, and we'd like to again."
