As you can see snow has created major issues all across the Tennessee Valley.
Including some major roadway issues for drivers along Shallowford Road.
But, as dozens cars stalled out, a remarkable thing happened when a community banded together.
"A lot of people out here don't know how to drive in this snow and their trying to climb this hill. Usually if you put it in second gear you'll have better traction," says Rick Neufield.
Good advice, but it seemed to be too late for dozens trekking up this hill. "Yeah Hundreds since the last couple of hours. You can see back there how backed up it is."
But, a group of good samaritans took matters into their own hands- starting with Vicky Dodster. "This started out because I knew I had sand and I prayed to god that he would let me make it out here so he would let me use it and he did."
And, as she got out and started pouring sand, others stepped up. "Before you knew it, I had a Sergeant Sanders from the air force recruiting office and all these guys," says Dodster.
Rick Neufeld looked on in amazement, "they've been here for a half hour dropping it underneath the tires and getting it started to keep the traffic flowing. "
Retired Navy Officer, Keith Smart, jumped right in. "I saw all these guys helping out and it just touched me because it let me know that there is still good around here.. So I was like I'm not doing anything let me start helping out anyway I can."
Their motivation proved to be simple. "If we don't help each other then nobody is going to help us," says Dodster.
Of course roadways are still not clear, and have the potential to create some major ice issues overnight.
