As many of you know, the East coast has been hit with record breaking snow storms. Washington DC had the deepest snowfall in 90 plus years and parts of Maryland had over 30 inches. We were very lucky here in Southside Virginia. We got snow Friday that accumulated to around 4 inches, but the rain we got that night melted almost all of it. Saturday it turned back to snow and we got about 3 more inches of very wet snow that also melted some. I took the picture above this morning. As you can see our snow is not very deep and it had melted off the driveway. When I went to the store this afternoon, the roads were free of snow and dry.
Some areas in the state got deep snow and some areas got a lot of ice. Hubby works for an electric coop. He had to go to work Saturday morning around 5 AM and worked until 11 PM last night. He was up again this morning and out the door at 5 AM. He got home around 7 PM - cold and tired, but everyone has their electricity back on. Almost all their outages were in the western region.
Another storm is predicted for Tuesday. According to the weather map we will be just south of the snow, in the rain only area. I hope that is correct. I'm just not a cold weather or snow person and I have had enough of winter.
