The blowing and drifting snowstorm arrived today bringing about 8″ of snow so far to the Tidewater area. Virtually all of Virginia experienced snow with some areas blanketed by a foot or more. Thankfully, mister gardener and I did not have to venture out by vehicle. A short afternoon walk was invigorating however, especially for the dogs who love a romp in snow. Back inside, mister gardener kept the fires burning and we could stretch out and enjoy a good book and/or browse through a stack of seed catalogs. We have not lost power and all is well.
Tomorrow should bring sunny skies and possibly warm enough weather to begin the big melt. Here’s a snapshot of what it looked like in Gloucester VA today. Love to know how the rest of the state fared!
