Delayed Opening, 11 AM, Thursday, January 30

Subject: 11 AM Opening -- Thursday, January 30


As you’ll note in the attached winter weather advisory from Rodney Diggs, Anson County is expected to experience hazardous road conditions again tomorrow morning as temperatures dip into the single digits/low teens overnight and roads re-freeze.   Thus, due to those factors and the safety of our staff, County Administrative Offices will open on a 2.5 hour delay, at 11:00 AM, on Thursday. 

Jeff Waisner and his crew have committed to doing whatever it takes to make sure your parking lots and walkways clear of ice by that time.

When marking your time sheet for Thursday, you are eligible or up to 2.5 hours of Holiday/Official Leave – you will not receive credit for any hours above your regular hours.

For additional details concerning adverse weather leave policy, please consult the Anson County Personnel Ordinance, Article VI. Leave of Absence, Section 4. Adverse Weather Conditions – Leave Policy.


Please drive safely and watch your steps.

Subject: FW: 29Jan2013, 11AM update: Frigid night temps, black ice, and hazardous travel conditions through mid-Thursday


Here is the latest update from the NWS:


A winter weather advisory continues through Noon Thursday for all of central North Carolina:

  • Many roads are still snow-covered and will remain hazardous today, particularly locations that received the heavier snow east and northeast of the Triangle.
  • Any melted snow on the roads will re-freeze immediately after sunset, resulting in widespread black ice problems across much of central North Carolina tonight and Thursday morning.
  • Frigid temperatures are expected across all of central North Carolina tonight, with lows bottoming out in the lower teens, and even single digits where the heavier snow fell.
  • Temperatures across the area  will not rise above freezing until around Noon Thursday, so expect hazardous travel conditions through that time.
