You didn't even need to leave home to find trouble. An SUV struck a house in Pinch as secondary roads replaced now well-treated interstates as the place for weather-related crashes. A pickup flipped on an ice covered hollow road near Charleston.
Harold Canterbury and his sister-in-law were left hanging with the SUV they'd been riding in on road off-road and ready to roll into a creek on Gabe Road.
Heavy snow in the mountains and a new round of on and off snow squalls created more road hazards. Emergency workers say take your time, use common sense and don't expect these icy back road troubles to melt away in sub-freezing temperatures.
