BECKLEY, WV - Winter made a brief comeback over the weekend as a strong cold front swept through the area, changing the rain to snow across the entire state. Most areas saw a dusting, with the mountain counties seeing several inches of springtime snow. The wet and snowy roads contributed to several serious accidents on state highways, the most dramatic of which occured at Cabin Creek on the West Virginia Turnpike (video clip above). Thankfully, no one was apparently hurt in the accidents.
