Loudoun’s first snow day of the season came sooner—and hit harder—than expected.
A fast-moving nor’easter on Thursday brought the East Coast the season’s first taste of winter weather. In Loudoun, the storm left several inches of snow, treacherous roads and scores or cancellations, including the county’s public school classes.
While the heavy snow stopped in the early afternoon, the area is expected to see more sleet and freezing rain through the evening rush hour.
Loudoun’s first responders spent the day aiding motorists in numerous car crashes and spin-outs. In a crash in Sterling, a car slid off the road into the front of a single-family home; luckily, no injuries were reported.
Most public events today and tonight have been canceled because of the dangerous road conditions.
