Sleet in Dandridge on Friday morning.
Icy conditions affected much of East Tennessee, including Grainger and Jefferson Counties.
Freezing rain turned to sleet around 11:20 a.m. on Friday in Dandridge.
The sleet lasted for about an hour.
"It's not no worse than I've seen in my time. I've seen floods and ice storms and snow storms and a whole bunch of stuff," said David Hubbard of New Market.
However, Hubbard said he was not taking any chances.
"I got all my stuff done outside before it [the storm] got here... we made it fine," he said.
Drivers dealt with some slushy roads; however, back roads remained quiet.
The American Red Cross closed its emergency shelters around 4:30 p.m. on Friday, including the one in Jefferson City.
"If it was imminent we would have cots in here and it would've looked a lot more like a shelter but we've been following the weather and no reports," Disaster Volunteer Don Barker explained.
There were seven Red Cross emergency shelters open in the region throughout the morning and afternoon on Friday.
