WEB EXTRA: East Texans wake up to winter, snow

UPSHUR COUNTY (KLTV) - For the second time in two months East Texans woke up to a winter blast.

Counties like Titus and Camp got light dustings, while Wood, Upshur and Gregg had accumulation.  Not quite as heavy as the February snowfall, but definitely colder.

Snow started to come around 1 in the morning, along with a driving bone chilling wind.

In some spots overnight the accumulation is heavy like here in Gilmer, where they're getting 2 or 3 inches.  It's a wet snow and it's not sticking, but it is making the roadways slick.

Later in the morning snow began to stick, creating some problems with road and speed limit signs that were soon obscured.

Some minor accidents due to the slick roads, but no major incidents.
