Sun clears Newnan roads, stores open
by Ellen Corker
With clear skies and warm sunshine, Bullsboro Drive in Newnan was dry and clear of the remains from this week’s ice and snow — and many businesses were open as of 2 p.m. Thursday.
Despite earlier reports that Ashley Park retail center would be closed Thursday, most of the stores and eateries as well as the movie theater were open by lunchtime. One store owner noted that Friday is Valentine’s day, and was open for customers — even though he did not have power at home.
Cars also crowded the parking lots of area grocery stores.
Only a few patches of snow remained in shady spots on roadsides, along with some debris from fallen limbs from Tuesday and Wednesday’s ice storm.
