Some commuters reported a seven hour ride home. The roadways from Bristol to Johnson City gave drivers a challenge. Parts of the roadway were shut down and traffic rerouted and traffic was at a crawl. In Erwin the slippery roadway sent a woman and her children into a waterway. They were all rescued.
