The surprise snow lead to some big problems on the roads. Several accidents and slick conditions led to a slow morning commute.

Did drivers think it was going to snow?

"No, I did not. I figured it was going to be clear all the way home," said Benji Moore, a driving returning home to Norfolk, Virginia.

Benji Moore got a surprise when making his way around Charlottesville while heading home to Norfolk. Thinking it was going to be a clear day, and an easy drive to cruise in; the snow has changed his plans.

"I'm thinking I going to have to go a little bit slower this time," said Moore.

The snow also dropped in on Richmond area, but the scattered flurries did not affect drivers too much.

"We came up Interstate 64, but it did not get bad until around Goochland. It's not too bad," said David Holley who drove from Richmond.

The weather may not be bad, but then again it depends on who you ask. Several drivers in Albemarle County were in accidents, and a couple of them were taken to a hospital.

Drivers are aware, and being alert.
"We got fifteen minutes to go, so you never know," said Daniel Frame, a driver from Richmond.
