Tdot, Lisa Yount and her husband are storing some of their “essential elements” for the forecast winter weather.

“We all today. Bread, oreos, beer and Coca-Cola diet is all we need,” she said.

If you were in last winter, you may remember we had no snow until early January. And that memory is still in the minds of many.

“I do not think I’ll go anywhere,” said Jenny Watson, who is planning to stay in, watch some football and make Christmas cookies.

While others are not as concerned.

“It really does not seem too worried,” said John Deschenes.

TDOT maintenance crews have already taken the necessary precautions. They spent all of Friday to brine on the roads in advance, and will continue to do Sunday afternoon, 12:00 to 4:00 p.m.

According to TDOT, they have many resources available for use in East Tennessee at the battle of ice and snow this season, including:

- 214 salt trucks

- 54,920 tons of salt

- 211 snowplow

- 103 trucks brine

But some, like Yount, said they tend to avoid risk.

“I’m not leaving,” she said. “I get everything done before because I do not want to risk any damage to my vehicle and myself.”
