The snow that blanketed Floyd County and most of the rest of Virginia ranged from 5 inches to a foot or more and winds drifted what fell into drifts of two feet and up.
While the white stuff looked pretty on trees and branches, it also turned roads into hazardous treks. By 8:30 a.m. Monday, no snow plows from the Virginia Department of Transportation had made it to Harvestwood Road (right) and the tracks left by earlier travelers quickly drifted over.
Schools were closed in Floyd County along with many businesses. In Floyd, only Cafe del Sol was open downtown for coffee or food. The Courthouse was closed as well and a scheduled court date was postponed.
With single-digit temperatures forecast for tonight, the snow that does melt will turn into sheets of solid ice by morning.
And this is the month when Spring arrives?
