All this snow created a very scary situation Wednesday morning when a house started falling apart while two people were sleeping inside of it.
Jeannie Gregory, of Canaan in Upshur County, said she was sleeping around 5:30 a.m. when she heard glass breaking. She jumped out of bed and woke up her 85-year-old neighbor who was staying with her.
They went to a neighbor's house and started calling emergency officials to come help them. The problem, though, is that the snow and down trees were preventing crews from getting to them. The back side of the house did fall down.
There's some good news, Gregory was able to eventually get out of the area and make it to her daughter's house.
She wants people to know that most of the Canaan and Goshen area are buried under about 3 feet of snow without electricity or phone service.
