Ice is everywhere up top in the mountains! John Taylor on Devils Knob at Wintergreen sent us this photo early Friday morning. Pretty much everything is encased in ice from Thursday’s freezing rain. Friday – December 16, 2022

We told you about the freezing rain even on Thursday in this roundup.

Skies cleared overnight Thursday, but freezing fog and black ice became a real problem along highways across the area. Amherst County closed schools again on Friday. And, crews were still dealing with ice taking down power lines in some locations.

Aside from those power and travel woes, the sunshine on Friday made the ice left behind pop!

We get plenty of sunshine for the next few days with temperatures slowly getting colder into early next week then the temps really take a nosedive as we head toward Christmas. There’s also the chance we deal with a winter storm late next week. More as we get closer.
