CHARLESTON, WV - The area's first notable snow event of the year came at an inconvenient time, right at the height of evening rush hour traffic. Numerous accidents along with cars and trucks unable to climb the slippery hills made for slow going on the roads for evening commuters. By morning, 3-4 inches of snow blanketed most of Charleston.


Snow tops the State Capitol dome.

Many streets around town remained untreated Wednesday morning.

Conditions were good for sledding at Oakwood Terrace...

..but not so good for drivers, who slid uncontrollably down the hill.

The ice on the frozen Elk River ended at the Kanawha.

A set of buried stairs shows the snow depth.

Snow-covered downtown.

The interstate was finally clear by Wednesday morning.

A snowplow clears an entrance ramp to I-64.

We won't be needing these anytime soon.
