Snow on the Mountain
And as the news of the storm began to reach Mary and me in Alexandria, one story I saw was that as much as a foot of snow was getting dumped up in Shenandoah National Park. Skyline Drive was closed, but in the typically beautiful weather that follows a storm like this one, the park was soon reopened.
So Mary and I took a drive up to the park, and I wasn't disappointed in my search for early season snow. These first two photos are from the Jewell Hollow overlook, looking down into the Valley. You can catch a glimpse of Lake Arrowhead to the west in one of them.
The final picture I'm sharing today is a view of the Big Meadow area from the nature center across Skyline Drive. Sure enough, this is where the largest accumulations were - it was chilly enough up there for the snow to stay down.
