MOTHER NATURE SCORES A SURPRISE HIT IN SOUTHEAST
VIRGINIA...WHOMPS ALL FORECASTERS (including me!)




I am so embarassed to report that while I did originally suspect a coastal low off the Virginia capes, I backed away from that claim, and thus my two Aunts.... Sandy and Helen in Hayes, VA of Gloucester County... got walloped with 6 or more inches. This one caught everyone by surprise, including the NWS. Here's the email from Aunt Helen I received Monday night.

"Havin some fun in Ole Virginny! Rich, I didn't hear from you about this one! Seems to have caught everyone by surprise! Right now at 2:25 p.m. we have at least 6 inches and it's still snowing furiously! Hope everyone is keeping safe. I had to prove to you that we got blasted, but if you were to watch the weather channel, you would never know! "

Yet another part of the country to see surprise snow to the delight of many children, adults, (and pets).
