Winter Storm Troubles

From high winds to icy roads, the wintery mix that moved into Western North Carolina over night packed a punch.

This morning, high winds toppled a tree onto a mobile home in South Asheville.  The pine tree fell against the home, gouging a hole in the roof, in the Wellington Mobile Home Park, just off Airport Road.

A woman was inside the home at the time, but thankfully was not injured.

The park manager says they will give the woman a new trailer because hers had too much damage for her to continue living in it.

Salt trucks have been on the roads all morning, doing their part to help keep drivers safe. 

The highway patrol did say there have been a few wrecks, but nothing severe. 

And, taking to the skies, many travelers, hoping to fly home for the holiday despite the winter storm.

Brian Rees, flying home to Chicago, "I'm absolutely concerned.  I was concerned after seeing the weather forecast. I really just want to be home with my family for Thanksgiving."

Delays are possible due to weather and also because today is on track to be the busiest travel day of the Thanksgiving weekend.

Experts say, remember to check with your airline before you head out the door and make sure to arrive early.
