Six inches so far in Berryville, how about you guys?

Working on two in Warrenton, mainly ice granules.

A thick layer of sleet here just west of Staunton. Prime conditions for power lines and trees to ice!

Wife says a little ice in western Roanoke Co. Not too bad, hopefully.

Just a little ice in Lynchburg.

We were just laughing at that facemask full of snow, Bonk!

working on a nice sheet of ice here in Spotsy, no snow seen yet.

About 3" in central Loudoun. Been listening to my scanners all day. Crashes all over the place.

Plenty of rain, but no snow on the middle peninsula ... You guys can keep that stuff out there.
Link Posted: 12/8/2013 10:26:55 AM EST
Nopefully not too much here... Been stuck at work since 6am in a windowless basement and don't get out till 6pm. Hopefully the roads aren't too bad.

I'm in South Roanoke. We have maybe 1/8" of ice on the vehicles and trees. Our wood front porch and concrete walkway doesn't even have anything on it...just wet.

little over 6 up here, waiting for it to ice over. Was already slick earlier. Already called in tomorrow.

We had right around 6" here in Strasburg. Turned to sleet/freezing rain about 3 hours ago. Still coming down a little.
Link Posted: 12/8/2013 11:37:15 AM EST
What are the odds of the rain coming at 1AM to turn this all into a nice glaze of ice? It's staying below freezing.

According to the forecasts I have been seeing here in NoVa, that is exactly what will be happening.

Front Royal - 3 inches of snow and a half inch of ice granules.

I believe even if the govt closes, you then have to telework. No more days of "closed."

It just depends. Sometimes we'll close and be given "admin days." There are no absolutes.
Link Posted: 12/8/2013 12:38:59 PM EST
No snow accumulation, but very icy down here in Ruckersville. Like DK, I'm hoping it warms up and melts off tomorrow - I loaned my 4WD Tacoma to a friend earlier this week and the '68 mustang in the garage is not very ice-friendly.

I can easily telework though, so that's a plus.
Link Posted: 12/8/2013 2:47:31 PM EST
5 inches of snow here in NW Loudoun County, with a topping of about 1/2 inch of ice crystals. If the freezing rain hits here tonight as per the forecast, it's going to be a bitch getting to work tomorrow.
Link Posted: 12/8/2013 3:29:23 PM EST
7" West of Winchester,sleet covered.Plow cable broke on 4wheeler,wanted to quit anyway.
Winter sucks. FBHO.
Link Posted: 12/8/2013 3:33:26 PM EST
Approx. 4in in Manassas with a nice crunchy layer on top. Kind of raining/ freezing rain right now. Just walked the bulldogs. They love the snow.
Link Posted: 12/8/2013 3:39:24 PM EST
About 1/2''of ice in Christiansburg.
Link Posted: 12/8/2013 4:17:39 PM EST
Crunchy inch or so in Dale City.

Just drove home on Fairfax County Parkway through Reston/Herndon. They're behind in plowing. That's a major thoroughfare. If that doesn't improve the whole commute will be crap tomorrow!
Link Posted: 12/8/2013 6:42:49 PM EST
Quarter inch of ice on my truck in Lynchburg, but right now it's just rain/sleet.

Everyone here is hoping the temp drops by 10-15 degrees overnight so Liberty cancels finals

Not gonna happen....

Good to know. Haven't left the house all day here in Haymarket.

Already let work know I'll be teleworking tomorrow.

Hope it doesn't get too warm too fast tomorrow so I actually get some time to go sledding with the kids.

Clifton / fairfax station. We just lost power about 30 minutes ago. Was teleworking so I can't do that anymore.
Link Posted: 12/9/2013 6:14:12 AM EST
In Christiansburg we got about 1/2" of ice and no snow. It's all melting now. What a let down. It never even stuck to the roads.
Link Posted: 12/9/2013 6:26:26 AM EST
Fredericksburg we just had a bunch of sleet and then freezing rain.

This morning the trees and such were covered in ice (lost some branches) but the roads and such were just wet.

Yesterday we just made a fire in the fireplace and did Christmas decorating all day.
Link Posted: 12/9/2013 8:24:36 AM EST
2-3" of snow and a minimum of .25" of ice. Tree limbs started dropping around 0500 and continue to this point. Too dangerous to get out with the chainsaw.

Nothing but ice covered car's this morning and lots of branches on the ground in & around ballston .







And a couple furry wet mutts running around outside then inside
Link Posted: 12/9/2013 1:52:17 PM EST
What we had in Fluvanna melted off the roads pretty fast. The Jeep was frozen over pretty good this morning though. No problems getting into Charlottesville. Theyre calling for 1" to 4" of snow tonight / tomorrow morning.

snowing like crazy in B-ville again now.

522 North is closed heading towards Winchester from Berkeley Springs. (right before hunting ridge road)

I got the honor of turning around and going the wrong way so I could take an alternate route to work. fun fun fun.
Link Posted: 12/10/2013 2:28:16 AM EST
Sunday we got about 7-8" in woodstock. 1/4" of ice on top.

Right now we have about 2" on the ground, Its still coming down heavy right now. Work is closed.

522 still closed coming into Winchester from the north?

I went through at 6am ish and had to turn around and take Hayfield Road over to 50 to get into town.
Link Posted: 12/10/2013 1:11:49 PM EST
Fredericksburg was lame. We were supposed to get 1-2 inches. It rained, then it snowed for a bit, then it rained. Now everything is gone.

Anyone seen the W&OD trail? Would like to bike to work instead of paying to park in Crystal City . . .
