??????????Morris Mill Road was clear Tuesday afternoon.

??????????The Rt. 262 bypass around Staunton on Tuesday afternoon. Kudos to VDOT for having so many main roads cleared so soon after the storm.

??????????This farm is located within Staunton’s city limits.

??????????Rt. 11 heading north out of Verona on Tuesday afternoon.

??????????The sun came out and temps rose to mid- to upper-20s but trees remained snow-flocked.

??????????Blue Ridge Mountains in the distance.

??????????I-81 on Tuesday afternoon … clear and dry. Since our son was driving back from Nashville Tuesday on the interstates, it was comforting to see they were in such good condition.

    Seeing all those places makes a little homesick, even though it was only our home for 6 years. Thanks for sharing all the photos.
