Price Creek Road still with solid snow this morning.
Updated: Most major roadways have the snow melting away according to Lt. Kris Stancil with the sheriff's office. Stancil, who had just returned from checking roads in different areas about noon, said the main roads are mostly clear, but backroads, particularly the shady ones remain snow covered.
However, Stancil advised caution. Even on clear roadways there are patches, where slush may be packed in spots which will be just like ice and some remaining ice spots.
