That's right Andrew.
If you stayed indoors to get away from all the white stuff you may have felt the effects of the weather anyway. Power outages hit parts of Southwest Roanoke County for a couple of hours from about nine to 10-30 this morning.
If you were driving around you may have noticed more than a few fender benders.
