MORGANTOWN — Getting to work on St. Patrick’s Day was a wee bit dicey for drivers Monday morning, March 17.

Three inches or better of the white stuff coated Monongalia and Preston counties, slickening roadways and causing a handful of minor wrecks across the area.

While the snow came fast Sunday night, March 16, the melt-off was coming just as fast.

“Just looking out the window at the parking lot here, it’s already starting to melt off,” said Clark Nicklow, who directs communication services for Preston County 911.

“I think we’re gonna be OK,” he said.

“I wish I could tell you that,” said Evan Duffey, a meteorologist with AccuWeather.

March will continue to growl like a lion, winter-wise, he said.

“It looks like we’re going to have off-and-on snow for the rest of the month,” he said.
