WASHINGTON COUNTY (KFSM) - Winter weather swept through Washington County on Monday (Feb. 23) covering roads with ice and snow.

Snow fell throughout the day, making for slick road conditions across the county.

"I was only doing about 60 mph and everybody was passing me and I'm thinking you all are crazy, because you never know when you're going to hit some black ice," said Randall Wagner.

Temperatures are expected to stay below freezing overnight into Tuesday and some people like Wagner are hoping relief is on the way.

"I was just telling a friend of mine that I'm so sick of driving in this ice and snow," Wagner said. "I'm definitely ready for spring time."

The inclement weather forced some school districts like Farmington to release students early Monday.

Ann Shifflett has a daughter who attends Farmington High School and said she's glad the school district takes its students safety seriously.

"The ones that are driving by themselves are not used to driving in weather like that, so I'd rather have them home," she said.

Lincoln, Prairie Grove and Elkins schools also released students early Monday.
