Parts of the north Georgia Mountains that were expecting snow got a big disappointment Thursday night as cold rain blanketed the area.
Winter weather advisories that had been effect Thursday have now been canceled.
The snow fell for a short period of time in Ellijay and Blue Ridge but it wasn't cold enough to stick to any surfaces, not even grass.
"This is probably the worst because it is really cold rain," Griffin Rubin said. "It's not cold enough to cancel schools, and work. All that it's just cold enough to do is to make it really, really terrible for anyone that was outside."
The main concern overnight with temperatures in the upper 20s is the threat of black ice, especially on bridges and overpasses, but only in the higher elevations.
"I am staying home if there is black ice in the morning," Jordan Rubin said.
The Georgia Department of Transportation have crews on standby for icy patches. In Ellijay plows have been spreading salt and sand to keep roads from icing over.
