Nelson County, Virginia
It’s here! The snow that’s been talked about for a couple of days finally arrived in the mid afternoon hours on Friday.
By 4:15 PM law and rescue agencies reported numerous accidents along Route 29 in Nelson County and in Southern Albemarle County. Route 6 between US 29 and Route 151 is also reported as being very slick and hazardous. I-64 is reported as very slick with many accidents along the interstate between I81 & Charlottesville.
Route 56 E toward Shipman is also very slick with an injury accident being worked late Friday afternoon. So many accidents were being worked or reported they are too numerous to list here.
By 3PM the ground was completely covered up at Wintergreen Resort with at least a 1/2 inch of snow.
A Winter Storm Warning remains in effect until 6AM Sunday morning with the possibility of 1 to 2 feet of snow by the time this intense winter storm exits the area.
