Fishersville, Va. (WHSV) In several parts of the Northeast, Monday was a cleanup day. A storm over the weekend caused power outages and created messy and dangerous conditions on the roadways. Some had to reconfigure their travel plans because of it.
"We were going to leave on Sunday morning, and we looked at the weather reports and decided to delay everything for a day," said Gordon Holmes, who is traveling to Nashville from Harrisonburg.
With more snow on the way, it could spell trouble for morning commuters on Tuesday.
"Our crews used somewhere in the neighborhood of 13,000 tons of salt and other abrasives," said VDOT spokesman Ken Slack.
With more winter weather woes expected in our area Tuesday, VDOT employees are gearing up again, making sure all their vehicles are ready to get the roads cleared after snowfall begins.
"They're going to start pushing the snow as soon as it gets deep enough that they can get their blades down and keep those roads cleared," said Slack.
Holmes hopes his journey to Nashville isn't disrupted again by Tuesday's snow.
"We're going to head down to Roanoke for the night, and hopefully we're far enough south so that we'll miss it, but if not, we'll just take it easy," said Holmes.
At midnight, VDOT employees started a new shift.
"We still be doing some treating to keep the roads from refreezing," said Slack.
"Ice is the big thing to worry about, and hopefully we won't have any problem with that," said Holmes.
VDOT says no accidents involving serious injuries were reported Sunday.
