Williamsburg, Va. (WTKR) – Another round of winter weather brought rain, sleet and snow to Williamsburg on Monday.

Folks living in the Colonial Capitol woke up to find a dusting of snow and ice on their windshields and rooftops, though accumulations were minor.

The wintry mix that pushed through couldn’t seem to make up its mind at times, changing from period of heavy rain to heavy sleet and bursts of snow as well.

For most, the winter that just seems like it won’t go away, has worn out its welcome.

“It's been an incredible winter, it really has. I think it's been unbelievable for a lot of people,” explained Lois Ullman.

Across Williamsburg, daffodils and other spring flowers enticed by recent warm days were withering under Monday’s blast of cold.

“They are all kind of hanging down. Their heads are all hanging down today. The ice got them I think,” said Shirley Massey.

“I'm really sick of this winter as I'm sure everyone is and I'll be delighted to see it finally end,” Ullman stated.

The City of Williamsburg tells NewsChannel 3 that Public Works crews remained on stand-by through the day Monday and that crews had pre-treated bridges at 3:45 in the morning.
