  •  we got overnight snow and natl news crews (6+ / 0-)

    apparently CNN and NBC/Weather Channel? (Al Roker and some other person I can't remember the name of) were in the neighboring town broadcasting live.  When I woke up we did have a decent amount of snow on the ground and the roads were yucky enough to cancel everything.  But as the day went on, it dwindled to a dusting and the air temperature got warmer and at least half of our 8-9 inches were already melted by the time the sun went down.  This morning I look out the window and I can see patches of ground and the roads look fine.  I'm guessing CNN left town too.  Not a lot of excitement to be had.

      Up in Winchester. We got about 10-11 inches on the grass down in Fauquier.   We even had accumulation on the roads before noon.  Then The temps got above freezing around noon. The roads were slushy and the snow turned to light rain around 6 PM. We still have a good amount of snow on the ground. No MSM around either. Kids are still off today.

      If I had my way, I would repeal the 2nd Amendment. Since I can't have my way, I support a ban on all assault weapons. Now!

        Local news was broadcasting out of Middleburg this am, because supposedly they got more than a foot.  I'm right at the Fauquier/Loudoun line, and I think we got about seven or eight inches before it started to melt around two or three in the afternoon.
