Saturday night, re-opened. Lewis Rissler, supervisor of the Jefferson County Road Commiss- ion, said this morning that while all the county's primary roads are open, they are still covered with some snow and ice, making driving still somewhat hazardous. As, for the secondary roads, he said only about 40-percent of theni are open to traffic. But with the additional equipment and help from Buckhannon, it is expected that all county roads will be re-opened by sometime late tonight or Friday, at least to one-way travel.

The remainder of the staff is now busily engaged in orderin~ and receiving supplies, planning the i i but damages in these instances was only minor. In Charles Town the hazardous driving conditions accounted for numerous "fender bendings." While the Wednesday snow was of longer duration than the Winter's first big blow which hit the section Saturday and sun- day, it did not create as many problems for motorists, school ")fficials. state road crews and the public in general as did the qrst storm. It was actually the week-end snow punch which crippled the rural sections of the county, with the high winds of Sunday night, drifting more than 60-percent of them shut and others having only limited traffic openings. Lee Gruber, manager of the local office of the Potomac Light and Power Company, said this morning the Wednesday snow did not give the power company any trouble at all. But the Saturday and Sunday snow did create a lot of problems for the company. Saturday night two high ten- sion lines shorted out and the tops of the pole caught fire. But within 22 minutes the power line- men had re-routed the services through another sub-station and current was restored. During that period all power east of the W. & R. Sales Company, Jefferson Ave. section, Mechanicstown and other sections, East of Charles Town was off. Then Monday night the Middleway, Leetown, Summit Point and Kearneysville sections were without power for about an houre after a tractor trailer truck crashed into a power pole near Inwood, knocking out the ,sub-station in that section.
