Frigid winter morning ... minus 3 in western Augusta County

Moon over the snowy Appalchians at 6:00 a.m.

Brrr! It's cold enough to freeze your icicles off. Yesterday's snowstorm continued into the night and this morning we see we picked up more accumulation to up our total to about 10" of snow in our corner of western Augusta County.

On top of that the temperature is minus 3! That's frigid!

The sun is out this morning and our daytime high is expected to be in the upper 20s. There will be some melting but then cold temps tonight will make it freeze on the roads again.

And listen to this: the weatherman said there's more snow coming next weekend with possible "substantial" accumulations. We are finally having a snowy winter. The water table has to be about recovered by now after a number of years of drought/dry weather.

It's winter in the Shenandoah Valley....
