Sticky snow coats region

NATION VALLEY — Rain turned to ice and snow last night, leaving the region coated with its first substantial accumulation of the season.

Municipal plow trucks, heaped with salt, made their snow-clearing debut of 2017-18 as residents awoke to a winter wonderland.  Roads were a slushy, snowy mess early in the morning.

Environment Canada forecasts a 40 percent chance of more flurries this evening. But the snow could all disappear with temperatures forecast to rise above freezing on Tuesday.
