Valley wakes to second spring snow of 2014

In the past several days, trees in the back yard have begun to bud in my corner of Augusta County. This morning, a gentle spring snow covers those buds as overnight rain turned to snow when the thermometer dropped to freezing.

Friends south and west of Staunton are reporting 3 inches of snow so far, and church is canceled in at least one location. Interestingly enough, meteorologist SWAC son-in-law gave us a heads-up a couple of days ago that we would be seeing more snow even as 70-degree temps approach the Valley for later this week.

Someone shook the snow globe again so I'll just mark it down as a continuing of Winter 2014. It's spring in the Shenandoah Valley of Virginia....
