Shenandoah Valley: And the snow begins ... first photos

 Our snow lights are on as heavy snow falls in Augusta County. Snow began falling around 8 pm.

Heavy snow began in the central Shenandoah Valley around 8:00 p.m. and quickly covered the deck, grass, slate walk, gravel driveway, and everything else. Forecasters are still predicting 8-14 inches for this area ... we have the Weather Channel playing in the background almost as if turning it off will make the snow go somewhere else. My inner seven-year-old is coming out with nose pressed to the window as I excitedly check the deck, then head outside on the porch, then back to the deck. Tomorrow will be beautiful watching the snow coming down. These are the first photos taken 45 minutes after it began....

Blue Ridge Community College and Mary Baldwin College have already announced they will be closed on Wednesday. Check WHSV TV-3 for a complete list of closings as school systems begin calling in. For weather updates: NBC-29, WHSV TV-3, Waynesboro News-Virginian, Staunton News Leader.

Enjoy the snow! Be safe and stay warm....
