Triad-- Sunday brought the Piedmont Triad its first winter story of the season and a busy day and night for emergency crews. 

When the rain changed to sleet and then snow, emergency crews took the biggest hits with vehicle wreck calls.

Counties and areas north and northwest of Guilford County reported seeing the first sign of wintry mix.

Once slick spots developed on the roads and highways, Triad 911 emergency centers received dozens of motor vehicle crash calls.

The NC Department of Transportation (NCDOT) has issued warning to drivers to stay off the roads unless absolutely necessary.

Most schools in the Piedmont Triad were already closed Monday for Teacher's Work Day or President's Day. Guilford County and several others that had school on Monday have since cancelled.

Shoppers hit area grocery stores and hardware stores to buy the usual winter weather goods.
