The 50 Degree Snow Day


Yes, we had one of those.  Welcome to Central Virginia.

Last week we got about a foot and a half of snow in less than two days, which for this part of the country is astounding.  Cities and towns just do not have the capability to deal with this much snow in a reasonable amount of time, and most businesses are forced to shut down for a few days until either the snow plows catch up with the work or the snow melts.

The snow usually melts first.

Why?  Because after it snows here it usually warms up quickly.

Our big snow hit Wednesday and continued through Thursday.  These are some highlights from Friday late afternoon.

Temperature:  53 degrees F.

How have you been enjoying the winter weather?
