The judge-executive quickly declared a local state of emergency so that people would know it was time to stay home and get off the roads so the road crews could do their jobs. Goodness knows, some people in downtown Barbourville learned that lesson the hard way. Numerous cars were left stranded along the sidewalks because the snowplow came along and pretty much blocked them in.
