Winter grips Annandale in icy fingers



Winter weather has finally arrived in Annandale, with sleet, freezing rain, and snow, making for some headaches on Monday, Dec. 9, including traffic tie-ups, downed trees, a power outage in the Columbia Pines area, and a large sink hole on Hummer Road near Pleasant Way, caused by a water main break. A car got stuck in the sink hole at about 7 a.m.; fortunately no one was injured.

The video (above) on the ice storm was taken by Bob Kovacs of Annandale Arts.

More snow is on the way. The National Weather Service is predicting an accumulation of 3 to 6 inches, starting at around daybreak on Tuesday, Dec. 10.

Fairfax County public schools and FCPS offices will be closed on Dec. 10. All school activities are canceled. Santa’s Ride, which was expected to cruise by Belvedere Elementary School, is cancelled, too.
