Complicated Weather System Sweeps Through County

Flooding was reported out in the county as well as inside the city limits. The LPD had to handle traffic late Sunday afternoon until this car was towed out of the high water at the intersection of Ellington and Meador Drive. (Photo by D. Gregory)

Macon County Schools convened two hours late on Monday, January 14, after Mother Nature brought heavy rains and flooding on Saturday and Sunday, with temperatures during the last few days more like spring than winter. Then the old gal socked us with a blast of frigid air later in the night that dropped the temperature to 28 degrees by Monday morning.
