A wintry mix of rain and snow poured down on the Frederick-Hagerstown, Md. region Wednesday night.
The snow wasn't sticking in either city but at higher elevations, like Boonsboro, snow was quickly accumulating.
State highway plows were lined up making sure Highway 40 was safe to navigate.
Travelers who didn't like driving in the mess found winters abrupt arrival frustrating.
But one driver heading home to West Va. following a night of Christmas shopping was ready to welcome the wonder's of winter.
