Last weekend’s snowstorm moved mostly north of Lancaster County, leaving us with a dusting of snow and a bit of ice, followed by bitter cold.
Parts of the Upstate and most of North Carolina got heavy snow, but Lancaster got only flurries that began around 9:30 a.m. Saturday and continued until about 11 a.m. The clouds then cleared, and the sun was shining through ice on the trees by mid-afternoon.
Snow and freezing rain caused just 34 customers in the county to lose power Saturday, said Rick Jiran, Duke Energy’s vice president for community relations.
