Snow? Yeah, that's snow on the ground…sort of

Yep, that's a bit of snow on the ground this morning. Over in West Virginia, they have six inches or more but what fell here overnight was just enough to make the ground seem almost white.

The thermometer read 21 when I got up at 5:00 a.m. today and might reach 31 at the height of the day so the wet conditions will bring black ice on back roads and slick conditions on bridges.

Snowfalls are rare these days. Not like the 50s and 60s when snow fell from October to February (and sometimes March) and today's forecasts calls for light snow showers with all precipitations ending by 6 p.m.

Overnight lows will remain below freezing throughout the week but highs are expected to reach 46 degrees on Thursday and the low 40s for the weekend.

So enjoy it while it lasts.

  1. Had close to an inch down here in some parts of Carroll. The heaviest snow was between Galax and Hillsville. Enough to make everything white. It’s very encouraging for the upcoming winter!! Love the post.

  2. Schools should definitely have been closed this morning. At the very least, schools should have been delayed two hours to give the road crews a chance to make the roads safer. Alum Ridge Road was entirely too dangerous for anyone to be on, especially school busses. I sat up there for over an hour because there was a nine car wreck and no one could move because it was so slick.

    Dr. Arbogast and others who make the final call need to start making wiser decisions when it comes to the safety of our children, teachers, and staff. There was no need to put all of those folks in danger like that and I hope many, many parents and other concerned citizens will write and/or call (745-9400) to voice their opinions.
