Everyone is home because all local colleges and schools as well as many businesses closed in advance of the predicted 20-28" of snow.
The Richmond Times-Dispatch reports that some parts of Virginia may see record snowfalls in this gigantic nor'easter.
In the SWAC area we are under a winter storm warning through 10 p.m. on Saturday with two feet plus of snow predicted, winds kicking up with 30 mph gusts, and low visibility.
It reminds me of the Winnie the Pooh rain song, only substitute snow:
And the snow, snow, snow came down, down, down ...It's winter in the Shenandoah Valley....
And the snow came tumbling down.
