bullet, but that is not the case in
Rockbridge County.

Emergency management coordinator
Robert Foresman estimates that about
five-thousand people are without power
this morning.

We've also heard that there are downed

The fog and ice combined to
make conditions dangerous for drivers.

Cars, tractor trailers, even a
bakery truck and a snowplow crashed
near the top of Afton Mountain, between
Charlottesville and Waynesboro.

The highway was closed in both
directions for several hours.

No word on the extent of any
injuries.

Neighbors in nearby Windsor Hills

a new plan.... one that includes much

The new plan includes many of the

creating another bump in the road to
compromise.

Before winter break anyone in the
New River Valley could pick up the

station.

After students returned,
listeners could only tune in from
Blacksburg and Christiansburg.

Engineers say the problem is
definitely the transmitter...also known
as "Harriet."

Her full power is three
kilowatts, but she's only functioning
at about 150 watts now.

Students have launched a radio
emergency campaign to raise 9-thousand
dollars to repay a loan from the

icicles on signs, trees, and traffic
signals, because they can be good
indicators of conditions on the road.
