ONE BIG MESS!

Virginia Department of Transportation was encouraging motorists to stay off the road Friday morning as nearly half a foot of fresh snow had fallen by mid-day.
In Carroll County, both lanes of Interstate 77 were shut down when several tractor-trailers crashed or jack-knifed between mile markers one and 41.
“Drivers should only travel if absolutely necessary,” a VDOT press release stated. “If travel is essential, drivers should check road conditions before they leave by logging onto www.511Virginia.org.”
Pulaski Fire Marshal Chip Hutchinson participated in a conference call with the National Weather Service and Virginia Department of Emergency Management just before noon Friday. He said NWS was calling for Pulaski to receive between eight and 12 inches of snow and maybe even a quarter inch of ice before everything wound down Saturday.
He said the snow was expected to change over to sleet and freezing rain for a while Friday evening before returning to snow Friday night and into Saturday afternoon.
Winds also were expected to pick up to 20 to 30 miles per hour, with gusts to 30 to 40 miles per hour in the mountaintops.
