Raleigh County WV -

 

After Ice, sleet and snow hit the area Sunday night and Monday morning it left many people out of work. But, what about those who had no choice but to go to work?

The ice started Monday morning leaving a treacherous layer of ice underneath all the snow that's covering the roads. This left many businesses and schools closed for the day. And it left many people with no choice to leave the house.

I caught up with some people coming to and from work, who were sick of the snow altogether. A worker with Fronier Communications told me this has been bad for road conditions.

 

"The roads are the worse I've seen this year that's not counting the 10 or 15 inches we got earlier but this ice is hard to drive on," he said.
