The Eastern Shore was spared the effects of a winter storm that blasted much of Virginia on Sunday. On the Shore, the precipitation started around 11 a.m. Sunday and fell as a mixed variety throughout the day. Even though ice could be seen within the rain that fell most of the day and into the night, there was no accumulation nor were there any reports of damage. Approximately 1.5 inches of rain fell in the Onancock area. Before the precipitation ends this morning we may see a flake or two of snow mixed in. Early this morning level 2 restrictions were in place on the Chesapeake Bay Bridget tunnel. But the Eastern Shore basically made it through the bad weather with few effects other than the rain.
