January 29-- Overnight in southeast Georgia, there was very little to worry about with the winter weather.
Some slight snow accumulation was reported north of Vidalia in Soperton and west in Ailey, however, roads are clear with little or no ice problems. Tree limbs do have some icing but we've had no reports of power outages.
According to Toombs County EMA Director Lynn Moore, "It went pretty good. We didn't have issues that I know of. We didn't have any phone calls or have to go out. It looks like we might have dodged a bullet."
The forecast is calling for a chance of snow today with temperatures in the low 30's.
"It looks like it slid up and went around us, but it looks like we may have some more coming about mid-morning," Moore says.
Governor Deal declared a state of emergency in the state early last night primarily due to traffic-related issues in middle and north Georgia. State employees do not have to report until noon.
Meanwhile, schools are closed today along with some businesses and banks and the Social Security office in Vidalia.
