Heavy snow blankets area

The weather experts were right this time. For several days, they were warning a winter storm would hit the area Tuesday afternoon and continue through Wednesday morning.

After a rainy start, the precipitation turned to snow and quickly began accumulating, forcing schools to shut down early Tuesday, postpone sporting events, and go virtual or use snow days Wednesday.

Many other businesses and churches either changed business hours or planned to close Wednesday. Since temperatures are expected to 40 Wednesday, much of the snow will be gone by Thursday morning, especially clearing off the roads.
