There appear to be few harrowing stories from the blizzard of 2010 in Liberty County.
"Everything appears to have gone off without a hitch," Liberty County Emergency Management Agency Director Mike Hodges said Saturday morning.
The forecast issued by the National Weather Service Friday included a winter storm watch and said it would snow in the evening. The forecast was right on that, but not on the 1-3 inch accumulation that was expected.
In Liberty County there was just a dusting that gave some people a chance for a quick snowball fight.
"The kids in my neighborhood were just having the best time in the world," Hodges said.
There were also a lot of slushy snowballs scraped up and tossed in the parking lot of Liberty County High School after the Panthers win of Richmond Hill.
North and west of us, more fell. The Macon Telegraph reported as much as 4 inches fell in Bibb County. The Statesboro Herald estimated 3-5 inches across Bulloch County.
Here, though, the temperature didn't stay low enough to keep it snowing, so rain quickly melted any that fell.
"I talked to some deputies this morning and there's few signs it even came through," Hodges said of the storm. "It came and went fast."
By about 8 a.m. Saturday roads were even mostly dry.
The last time any snow accumulated in Liberty County was in December 1989.
