Ice Covers All

Originally published 12/9/13

Much of Virginia woke up Monday morning to a mixed blessing.

About a quarter inch of ice glazed everything in sight as a misty rain fell last night in below-freezing temperatures.

On one hand, it is beautiful. On the other, it is destructive and dangerous. On the third hand, the schools are all closed, and what that does is to be determined individually. 

On Kramer Drive SE, A tree fell to the ground, largely sparing a parked car which sustained only damage to the passenger side mirror. Utility lines were brought down from the weight of the ice. Power was lost on the 1000 block of Echols Street SE.

Refuse pickup in Westbriar’s NE Vienna was postponed to Wednesday because of road conditions.
