SHADY SPRING, WV - Snow began falling in earnest late Tuesday afternoon in the mountains of West Virginia. Beckley remained snow-free initially, but just to the east in Shady Spring, the snow came in heavy and fast. Roads remained clear, but bridges and overpasses quickly became covered with a slick coating of snow and ice. Many motorists were taken by surprise when they encountered the slick bridges.
