Today Charlottesville Virginia slowly digs out from a record two feet of snow!
For an area that normally get 6-8 inches of snow for an entire winter, 24 inches at one time is an unheard of occurance. The snow began falling at about 5:00 Friday evening and by 11:00 pm there was 11 inches of snow in my yard. And it continued to snow all night...and it continued to snow all of the next day...until when it finally stopped there was 24 inches of snow on the ground.
Two inches of snow can cause Charlottesville schools to close, so this much snow has paralized the area. I have spent the day shoveling out my driveway and watching cars and trucks get stuck in the road in front of my home. I am eagerly awaiting the arrival of the first snow plow. The snow on my roof is so heavy that it has torn off one of my gutters.
Central Virginia has been in a very wet weather pattern all year. If it continues throughout the winter, this snowfall may just be a preview of what is to come. The week ahead is forecast to be cold so this snow should stick around til Christmas giving Charlottesville its first white Christmas in many years.
