A powerful, early December storm brought heavy snowfall to the Georgetown Divide. Flurries started late in the morning on December 6th and 24 hours later, The Divide was buried deep in snow. As much as 20 inches was reported in the Georgetown area with higher amounts seen upcountry.
Local residents were out early Monday morning clearing snow from streets, sidewalks, decks and rooftops.
Talk of “hot toddys” was heard on Main Street as the clean up slowly proceeded.
The heavy snow knocked out power to The Divide for almost 30 hours before the lights came back on.
One local man said he hadn’t seen this much snow in Georgetown since the 1960’s. Even residents of Cool and Pilot Hill reported that at least 6 inches of the white stuff had fallen there.
If this early storm is any indication, The Georgetown Divide could be in for a long, hard winter.
