Above Derek Kidd shared photos of how dicey the roads were in and near Lovingston, VA on Monday morning.
Up at Wintergreen as much as 7 inches of snow fell there.
As expected the Virginia State Police were covered up with traffic accidents across the area.
The snow is pretty much over, but a period of freezing rain is expected in the evening hours Monday, eventually changing to plain rain later in the night and on Tuesday. Heavy rain and some flooding is expected due to all of the snowpack already in place.
