First snow of this year and second snow of this winter. Last snow in December was not accumulated on the ground, but this time caused a lot of black ice on the road.

This is a small city, but also involved with a lot of national affairs. Elton John came here to sing several years ago. The owner of Bain Capital which has been publicized during this Republic Premier, William Bain is a native of Johnson City and graduated from our local high-school, Science Hill High School. He hired Mitt Romney as Bain Capital’s first CEO in 1984 and made Mitt Romney a half billionaire.
