Snow Day – Nelson Public Schools CLOSED on Monday 2.20.12

[ 1 ] February 19, 2012 |

©2012 For a snowstorm that almost didn't happen it was a hit with NCL Jr. Publisher Adam Stafford and mom Yvette as Adam made his first snowman ever!

Nelson County, Virginia
For awhile on Sunday it looked like a forecast holding promises of snow was nothing but a promise. However, around mid-afternoon the skies opened up and the snow started falling heavy across Nelson. First in the southern portions, then on to the north. Enough snow to officially close Nelson County Public Schools on Monday 2.20.12

Photo By Brandon Cox: Down below it wasn't any better. Traffic began piling up on Route 29 just north of Lovingston around mid-afternoon Sunday.

It’s a storm that looked like it wasn’t going to pan out. But it did! By early evening Sunday the National Weather Service out of Sterling, VA finally issued a Winter Storm Warning. One had already been in effect for neighboring Amherst for almost 24 hours.

    Thanks for afternoon help on Rt. 29 . It was closed for a short period as snow & hills do not mix ! Thanks to Bobby Napier, dispatch, Nelson Sheriff Office , Fire & rescue squads , Front street & stony creek for towing , Also volunteers & anyone else I forgot ! Rt. 29 was a mess for an hour Probably as well as the whole county. Now Wintergreen condos on mountain are on fire with limited water !Sure Tommy will post more soon !
