When Dawson County residents woke up Saturday morning, they looked out their windows to find a world blanketed in several inches of fresh, powdery snow. Dawson County received between 2 and 5 inches of snow and ice on Friday and Saturday due to winter storm Helena, which blew through parts of the southeast and left much of the Appalachian mountain region covered in a swath of snow. Kids could be seen outside playing Friday night and Saturday morning, building snowmen and sledding down hills.
