Virginia's Department of Transportation is asking for patience from residents in Northern Virginia waiting for side roads and cul-de-sacs to be cleared of snow.

Plenty of Northern Virginians took advantage of the day's blue skies and spent some time freeing their cars from snow and ice. But Joan Morris, a spokesperson for VDOT's Northern Virginia district, says some neighborhoods may have to wait a few days before plows can get to their roads.

"We do have 7,000 miles of subdivision roads to take care of--that means it's going to be several days before we get to every last subdivision street," says Morris.

Morris says VDOT hopes to have all roads plowed by Wednesday night.
