(WBIR-Morristown) Snow fell for several hours Tuesday in Hamblen County, as Morristown saw some of the worst of this season's ongoing cold snap.

Jonna Watkins was on her way to Walters State when they announced they were going to close, due to the weather.

"Very icy, a lot of snow. When I left this morning. I had to use four-wheel drive," Watkins said.

Several businesses, both in downtown Morristown, and on the outskirts, also decided to close early Tuesday.

"I have to drive a little ways to get home, and it's hard to get all the way there and back because of the weather and all that," Morristown Dunkin Donuts manager Andrea Aguilar said.

The main arteries, like the Andrew Johnson Highway, were good to drive on. The side streets were another story, with several covered up for hours with snow. Many in town said this storm caught them off-guard.

"It's been a while-- I go to Walters State and I've never been out for snow," Watkins added.
