WESTMINSTER, Md. (WJZ/AP)–Commuters were greeted with mostly wet roads Wednesday morning with no major accidents reported. The wintry mix of snow and rain in our area is making for a gray, wet, icky afternoon.

Derek Valcourt reports on the conditions in Carroll County.

Folks woke up to a lot of snow but it has switched over to rain and light flurries. It’s washing away the snow that fell earlier.

Along 140 in Westminster, the snow was fairly steady all day but the roads remained clear. Plow trucks only had to clear a little slush from side streets.

“The roads aren’t bad. They started salting them last night. I came home around 6 p.m. and saw the salts trucks waiting to plow, so they all did a pretty good job,” one man said.

Residents woke up to several inches on cars and grassy surfaces. A rainy mix compacted much of that.

“At 6 o’clock when I opened my back door, the storm door swept across the snow and it was four inches deep and now it’s only two or three inches maybe,” said one man.

Shovels were out in parking lots, driveways and parking lots.

“It’s a little heavy to push around. You’ve just got to take your time,” said one man.

Many are happy for the snow day but they expected conditions to be a lot worse.

“They’re still calling for snow I understand,” said one man. “I don’t care.”
