While some drivers were out earlier in downtown Asheville, they told News 13 they wouldn't be out for long.

Locals also had advice for other people in a winter storm like this.

"If your car doesn't have four-wheel drive like mine. That's why I'm trying to hurry up, get gas and go home," Eric Wright, of Asheville, said. "Things like that. But yeah, if you're not used to it, you should definitely stay home."

"Yeah, we'll probably get in and stay in most of the weekend and avoid the roads," Chris Flanders, of Asheville, said.

"Especially if you don't have four-wheel drive, don't get out on the roads because it's unnecessary if you don't have to," Cat Chakales, of Weaverville, said.
