Floyd County didn’t get hit as hard as some areas of Central Virginia by Wednesday’s “winter event.”  More than a foot of snow fell along Interstate 64 from Waynesboro to past Charlottesville and provided plenty of winter scenes to see while driving to Richmond for the girls’ basketball semi-finals this weekend.

High winds combined with the heavy, wet snow sent many trees in the area crashing into power lines and onto the ground.
