A steady flow of ice pellets and snow are keeping back roads and highways covered with slush in Madison County Tuesday. There has been a constant flow of little ice pellets since late Monday. L.J. Rice and his grandson, Donovan, spent about a half hour are trying to start their two ATV's at their home in Wolf Laurel. Their house is below the road, so they're hoping to clear a path through some stubborn snow. They've got a similar problem as the big yellow snowplows trying to keep the pavement clear on I-26 down the hill. Snowplow drivers have focused on keeping I-26 open through Sam's Gap in Madison County. They're getting help from five additional snowplows from Buncombe County. Since there's no sign of this snow tapering off Tuesday night, crews will continue working 12 hour shifts to keep up with the ice and snowfall.Officials are asking drivers to keep their distance from the trucks as they shove the slush off the roads and to slow down and watch for icy spots on any of the high altitude roads.Follow Sherrill Barber on Twitter @SherrillBarberRelated Links:Madison County Morning SnowMany Still Without PowerPower Knocked Out for Thousands of Progress Energy Customers Widespread Power Outages Across Western North CarolinaMountain Snowfall Strong Wind Causes Tree To Fall on Dump TruckNCDOT
