It’s an icy winter morning in our corner of Augusta County with surfaces covered from freezing rain that began sometime in the wee hour of the morning and continued through commute time. Surfaces are coated with a thin layer of ice making it difficult to walk on sidewalks and decks. Delicate icicles hang from railings and fences as the wind blows, causing tree limbs to creak in their icy cocoons.
Most school systems are on two-hour delays as the temperature hovers around the freezing mark. Bath and Highland have decided to stay closed for the day.
It’s definitely winter in the Shenandoah Valley….
