People in Franklin, Kentucky enjoyed a taste of Winter weather.

Snow flurries started falling Tuesday afternoon and continued into the evening.  The snow started sticking to cars, and on some grassy areas, but roads remained clear.

Simpson County Emergency Management officials said they were keeping an eye on conditions.

State transportation officials said some bridges and overpasses in Christian County were treated to prevent ice.  Crews remained on standby in case conditions got worse.  No major accidents had been reported, but crews were ready to respond, if needed.

Some residents said they enjoyed the first snow of this holiday season.

“I don’t mind the snow as long as we don’t get ice,” said Gary Ross.  “The main thing is people need to slow down and take your time.  If the roads get bad, pull over.”

Snow flurries were also reported in Logan and Todd counties.
