More snow?

By Meg Hibbert

SALEM – Forecasters say there could be more snow this Friday, Jan. 25.

Salem , the Roanoke Valley and the New River Valley had their first snowstorm of the winter last week that moved in right on the forecasters’ schedule.

The wet snow topped two days of heavy rains with anywhere from 4 to 11 inches of the white stuff, depending where you were, and cut the power for several thousand people.

If snow does fall in Salem and Glenvar this week, send your best photos to the Salem Times-Register for consideration in next week’s printed issue: OurValley.org or email them to salemtimes@ourvalley.org, and please tell us the names of the people in the photos.
