The first flakes started before dawn, quickly covering the deck and grassy surfaces and then covering the driveway, causing slick conditions. With the temperature hovering at 26 degrees and not expected to get above the low 30s, some local students have a snow day while others will go in on two-hour delays.
As I gaze out the window at the snowflakes falling from the sky and the ever-whitening landscape, the little kid in me is excited at this snowy Friday. Hopefully, the de-icing beet juice put down yesterday by VDOT will help with the roads since this latest winter weather hit just in time for commuting to work.
If you can, sit back and enjoy. If you have to go out, be safe on this snow day....
