The Valley Prepares For More Snow

STAUNTON, Va. - Yet another snow storm is coming to the valley, and they're giving people headaches.

Lillie Parker lives and Staunton and says the snow is literally making her sick.

"I've been really sick, I've gotten more colds, I feel like I've gotten the flu one time, and I don't get colds," Parker says.

Many tourists in Staunton are even planning to make their way out before it comes.

"We've decided to leave this afternoon to avoid the worst of it," says tourist Ellen Donovan.

The snow is also affecting students.

Student Jasmine Blow says she uses her snow days to relax, but she admits there are some drawbacks.

"I guess it's a good/bad thing," Blow says, "when we miss a day, it's kind of like 'I kind of forgot what this is' so the teacher may have to go back and review, which kind of wastes time instead of going forward."

Kaela Kelly says she plans to stay in if the snow gets too bad.

"I don't like snow," Kelly says, "I refuse to drive in the snow, I have like a little sports car so it just doesn't do snow."

Leo Hanlow is from Canada and now lives in the valley and he says the snow doesn't bother him.

"I'm use to quite a bit of snow, and I like it, it makes me feel like I'm home," Hanlow says.

Spring is only a few days away but who knows when we could actually expect warmer weather, with a winter like this. is happy to provide a forum for commenting and discussion. Please respect and abide by the house rules:
