Looks like I need to make a road trip to Leesburg ASAP. I'm coming from northeastern NC and would be taking I-95 the majority of the trip. I don't drive on ice or snow. What's your roads like? Thanks much.
Right now there is rain on top of the snowfall from the NC border up to Petersburg, freezing rain/sleet from Petersburg to Richmond and snow from Richmond up to Doswell (Kings Dominion exit) with another small batch ready to head through.
If you don't do ice and snow, I would not be driving through here tonight or early tomorrow. After that, it is supposed to be clear until Sat. afternoon/evening.
Hope your not headed to Leesburg with a sick/injured horse! If so, could you go to Raleigh?
The above post is an opinion, just an opinion. If it were a real live fact it would include supporting links to websites full of people who already agreed with me.
Roads around Richmond were slick, sloppy, slushy mess this afternoon. Our office closed early due to weather today, and it took me over 90 minutes for what is usually a 40 minute commute, not because of traffic but because of road conditions. 295 was especially messy.
Richmond area is much better today, and with darn near all the schools closed, the traffic was pretty quiet this morning. I live west of Richmond and am working on the west side today, for what that is worth. Roads were just fine this morning on the way in.
