Saturday on the Brushies

Light rain turned to ice early Saturday morning in some higher elevations of Wilkes County, including the Brushy Mountains and Little Brushies. This scene is in Gray Faw’s peach orchard along Brushy Mountain Road. Duke Energy reported over 70 outages in the Windy Gap section of the Little Brushies, over 20 in the Lithia Springs Road area of the Brushy Mountain community and other scattered outages. Electricity was restored to most by nightfall.
