From road closures to snowy conditions up on Signal Mountain, we found residents Wednesday who say the wintry weather has made their trips up and down the mountain fairly inconvenient. Many people are finding themselves driving alternate routes - just to make it safely down the mountain.
Wednesday, we saw trucks clearing off roads on Signal Mountain- all to make them passable for drivers.
John Dixon takes the W Road almost everyday, but Wednesday he couldn't. Due to snowy conditions, many roads, leading up to the mountain were closed.
"It's uphill to signal and down hill to Chattanooga so when it snows like this, I just stay home," said Dixon.
We also found parts of Shoal Creek Road and Roberts Mill Road closed Wednesday - roads deemed as to dangerous for drivers.
"I've seen people come down Anderson pike and just kind of slide through in that driveway over there. So it's pretty dangerous," said Dixon.
Meanwhile, we found kids like 7-year-old Carter Livingwood making the most of his snow day.
"It's not powdery and I get to make a snowball and throw it at my mom," he said.
Janet smith and her family refused to let a few inches of snow dampen their day. They're like many who came out to the Signal mountain Golf and County Club Wednesday to sled.
"When it snows, everyone Comes out here and it's fun, yes the whole town comes out here - it's awesome," said Smith.
No word on when road crews will open parts of Roberts Mill Road, the W road, and Shoal Creek Road that are closed. by Jerry Askin
