Nelson County, Virginia
Folks awoke to a beautiful landscape of snow Tuesday morning after roughly 5 inches of snow fell in the mountains of Nelson County, Virginia. The snow started about two hours before dark on Monday afternoon and continued into the nighttime hours. Our Paul Purpura just returned with these beautiful shots! Thank you Paul!
Wintergreen Resort already had a very good base of man made snow, but Monday night's snowfall added to it!
In the valley below 1500 feet some snow fell, but less than an inch was measured in most locations.
Since buses were not able to run in the mountains of Nelson County, schools were closed.
WPOA crews did a fantastic job of keeping the roads clear while the snow fell.
Skies cleared by Tuesday morning with beautiful blue skies and sunshine on the mountains.
