Winter Ice Storm Hits Ava and Surrounding Area

According to reports, certain areas spanning from Dogwood to Sparta were cited as receiving a heavier glaze of ice during the recent winter storm.  This photo was taken at Dogwood Hill on Sunday, Jan. 13, and all the trees were still completely covered with a solid sheet of ice.  Electrical lines and trees throughout the area, including Ava, were also hard hit as limbs and debris could not withstand the added weight.
