  1. Wintergreen ended up with about 5”. Made for some fun skiing after work with the kids.
  2. That’s a nice depiction for Western Albemarle!
  3. Last night’s event lived up to the hype somewhat around Crozet VA. Number of roads still closed around the area and power restoration estimated sometime this weekend.
  4. From Nelson County - Via WPOA and Wintergreen Fire & Rescue : “We are currently experiencing hazardous conditions at and around Wintergreen. Winds are gusting over 50 mph, rain is heavy at times, and fog is thick. The wind has stripped nearly all foliage and created slippery roads. Trees have blocked roads and there have been traffic accidents. For the remainder of the afternoon, if you're able, please avoid driving and outdoor activities at Wintergreen.”
  5. There were some peaks of sun in Western Albemarle right after the line of showers but quickly clouded over again.
  6. Post-storm lightning shot as it moved through Nelson County this evening.
  7. Out in Crozet... nothing came to pass with the tornado warning. Just a light shower.
  8. Flipped to white rain in Western Albemarle
  9. Interesting. Didn’t hear/see it in Crozet.
  10. In Western Albemarle, the temperature jumped from 35 to 48 between 7am to 8am. Wind has started to pick up from the north with a couple gusts. Snow cover held on to a couple of the hills overnight, so hoping they can make it through the next few hours to keep things scenic into next week.
  11. It was a frustrating day down here. Albemarle did well back in December so I guess it evens out.
  12. Same out in crozet. Roads suddenly caved around 10:30
  13. Getting some skiing in up at wintergreen. Light snow that dusted late afternoon but not much since then.
  14. Just measured roughly 5.75” in western albermarle. Heaviest snow of day right now.
  15. Sounds accurate to me from what I’m seeing in western albermarle
  16. Albemarle upped to a WSW for 4-8 inches
  17. We drove over the Blue Ridge on I-64 for the first time in the daylight since last week's ice event. The tree damage along the ridge and on the Shenandoah side into Waynesboro was pretty substantial.
  18. Per nearby wunderground stations, have picked up about an inch of rain in the past 1.5 hours in Crozet / Western Albemarle. Wasn’t expecting that much to fall this evening.
  19. You’re right. Camille’s impact was mainly in central and southern Nelson. This is much more widespread.
  20. As a resident of western albemarle/Nelson, his “Camille like disaster” headline is very aggressive
  21. It’s also the same mountain where a passenger plane crashed in 1959 (https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Piedmont_Airlines_Flight_349).
  22. Listening to the rain after the storms rolled through, we heard a boom and I thought it was odd without any lightning flash. Turned out to be a plane crash in the mountain behind us. http://www.newsplex.com/content/news/Emergency-crews-respond-to-plane-crash-near-Crozet-479826173.html
  23. 5-6" in Western Albemarle, verified down here
