Students in Bath, Pendleton and Highland counties were allowed to sleep Tuesday morning because the start of their school day was put on hold for two hours until roads could be cleared.

Snow and ice covered roads in the counties on either side of the state line between Virginia and West Virginia, although state officials downplayed the severity of the situation.

"We don't really consider this to be too serious an event. We are dealing with it more over on the North Fork area, on 33 West and the higher elevation country," says Darell Warner the Supervisor of Maintenance with the West Virginia Department of Highways told WHSV TV in an interview.
