ROCK HILL, S.C. -- South Carolina is under a state of emergency as round two of a serious winter storm prepares to move in overnight. 

In York County, all schools will be closed on Wednesday, including those in Rock Hill, Clover, and Fort Mill. 

Most roads on Tuesday were just wet, even though snow fell for much of the day.  City and state trucks coated the roads with salt brine, including I-77 where there were no serious accidents reported. 

Some people were out trying to get some last supplies.  Snow shovels and ice-melt were pretty much impossible to find.  Betsy Bridges was just looking for some last minute food items and said so far the snow did not bother her very much. 

"I'm from Kentucky and we have lots of snow up there," she said. 

Asked if she felt confident driving around, she replied, "Yes, I hope!" 

Robin Turner was servicing vending machines in Rock Hill. 

He said of the snow, "You know for me, we don't get that much snow, so I'm just going to enjoy it while it lasts." 

Wednesday, the Rock Hill area is expecting 3 to 5 inches of snow during the day with a couple of more inches tomorrow night.
