It's not much and it's not any good for snowballs, but this morning brought snow (and ice and slush) to the area.

Mixed precipitation is expected to last a few more hours across the region, as part of the same storm system that brought tornadoes from Texas to Alabama and other parts of the South Christmas Day.

Up here in Virginia, the precipitation caused travel headaches on a day when some returned to work following the long holiday weekend. Secondary roads were slick. 

Earlier this winter, local forecasters predicted a slighty drier-than-normal winter with 6 - 7 storms where snow accumulates.

Can someone tell me why snow plows are sent out for 1" of snow. Seems a wee bit over the top if you ask me.

They are laying down salt and sand to keep the roads from icing up later.
