Along U.S. 522 in Woodville at midday Wednesday, traffic in the wet falling snow is heavier and slower than anyone would like on the day before Thanksgiving. There have been a half dozen accidents reported in Rappahannock County since the snow started this morning; one occupant of a vehicle that crashed on U.S. 211 had to be transported to Fauquier Hospital by Amissville fire and rescue. The entire length of Skyline Drive in Shenandoah National Park is closed due to snow and ice. At noon, Rappahannock Electric Cooperative was reporting just 15 customers without power in Rappahannock County — in the Flint Hill area, close to the park.
Be careful out there, and have a happy — and, they’re promising, not very snowy — Thanksgiving.
