VDOT prepared for a winter storm -- and even spread gravel in some areas ahead of time. But so far in Roanoke, only rain and sleet have been coming down.
Eric Earnhart spent the morning in a soggy Roanoke County and has this report.

The precipitation came down overnight and it's still falling, but most of it didn't change over to snow, as expected.

Eric Earnhart is outside the studios now, but earlier he was up on Bent Mountain.
What's it look like now Eric?
