HAGERSTOWN - The director of Washington County's highway department warned drivers to be careful this morning of roads that could have become icy overnight.
Ed Plank said Monday's cold temperatures, on the heels of Sunday's snowfall, could cause roads to ice quickly.
Sunday's snowfall hit western and southern Washington County the hardest, Plank said. It started snowing first near Keedysville and Sharpsburg, he said.
All of his department's 32 trucks were out Sunday afternoon, laying salt and chipped stone throughout the county, he said. By 4 a.m. Monday, trucks were back on the roads working with school officials to identify key areas. Washington County Public Schools operated on a two-hour delay Monday.
School officials were especially concerned by conditions around Clear Spring, schools spokeswoman Carol Mowen said.
Local residents said their routines weren't disrupted too much by the weekend's snow, but they took extra caution.
Marion Maynard of Hagerstown said he saw a lot of minor accidents on Interstate 81 when he was traveling to and from work.
