Winter storm brief, but intense

    Another day, another 5.25 inches of snow. Although officially spring is just a week away, Adams County residents are still feeling the sting of Mother Nature’s wrath after yet another winter storm slammed the area Wednesday.
    Another day, another 5.25 inches of snow. Although officially spring is just a week away, Adams County residents are still feeling the sting of Mother Nature’s wrath after yet another winter storm slammed the area Wednesday.
    The latest Arctic blast was short in duration, but heavy in intensity. Even with plenty of warning of the severity of the storm, many area residents were taken by surprise as the storm hit quickly, and hit hard. After a two-day tease of spring, with temperatures approaching 60 degrees, many morning commuters were taken off guard Wednesday as rain quickly turned to freezing rain.
    Nearly as soon as it began, freezing rain gave way to heavy snow and – with 30 mph winds whipping – blizzard-like driving conditions. Travel became difficult rapidly as white-out conditions and snow covered roads created a dangerous combination for motorists.
