LYNCHBURG, Va. -

Central Virginia began to dig out Thursday, as the snow was coming to an end.

Everywhere we turned in the Hill City, we found people armed with shovels digging out cars and clearing sidewalks.

And more than a few people were cashing in on a super-size snowstorm.

Jesse Rickman was shoveling sidewalks in downtown Lynchburg.  "For me it's a moneymaker," Rickman told us, "because I'm out of a job right now. So I just got up this morning, figured I wanted to walk around and try to make a little bit of money."

Downtown Lynchburg was largely deserted Thursday, as most businesses remained closed for the day.  Traffic was light on city streets, and US 460.

While many of the primary roads were passable, many of the secondary roads and neighborhood streets still haven't been touched by a plow.  And it's going to be some time before the hazards from this winter storm are a distant memory in central Virginia.
