It was business as usual for many folks in Central Virginia, despite the winter weather.
Local residents made the most of Tuesday’s storm.
"We've seen more snow in March than in the whole winter," says Sid Damico
With the third snow storm hitting our area in a month, folks have started taking the winter weather in stride
"My wife loves it. She has had the let it snow flag out all winter," Dick Southworth said.
Crews with the Virginia Department of Transportation pre-treated many raods Monday night, but hit the streets early Tuesday to make sure they were passable.
"Roads are slippery, people are going to have to take it slow,” says Damico. “Tonight it's going to get slippery"
"It's an inconvenience, but the roads are melting nice," Southworth said. "The only place I've seen any snow on the roads is where the trees have been dropping it."
Even with slushy roads by mid-afternoon, people were on the roads and on their way to school in Fluvanna County.
"I was shocked. This morning the bus came by our house and picked up two loads of kids and it's snowing," said Damico. "But if they think it's going to snow they close schools. It's crazy."
But even though they weathered enough storms this season, it doesn't mean folks are hoping winter lingers.
"The groundhog was right," added Damico. He said we were gonna get more winter. It looks like we're gonna get March coming in like a lion and going out like a lion. Never has that before."
