It. Hath. Snowed.
This photo was from Sunday morning. Before it snowed for another 12 hours.
We have between fourteen and eighteen inches, I think. It’s stopped, finally. Roads are a mess. We’re one of two campers left in the campground. Church today was cancelled. We went to visit with family and Blaine helped tow one car from the ditch and directed traffic momentarily to get the snow plow through.
Insanity. Take away from the day: Virginia does not handle snow well. They plow weird and incompletely, they don’t understand how to drive in it, and everything shuts down. We stopped for milk and eggs for breakfast and even Walgreens was closed. My sister in law rescued us. The troops shall eat another day.
The camper is warm. The bathhouse is warm. Boots are required to get to it, but we brought those. Drying all the things that are getting drenched is particularly fun in 200 square feet. I thought getting 10 bath towels a place to hang and dry in the cold was complicated. I stand corrected. That was nothing.
We’ll be staying here through Tuesday, I think. Give this madness a chance to melt a bit.

WOW!! What a snow! So did you all know it was supposed to snow before you left home? Sounds like you were prepared at least. I bet the kids love it.
You know, I was just thinking about you and wondering about snow in that part of the country.
This answered it!
Luckily it’s the Christmas season and if your kids are not excited for it, yet, all that white will get them going!
Fingers-crossed the snow melts by Tuesday for a safe ride home, though, good luck.
