Nelson: Halloween Snowy Wonderland At Wintergreen, Courtesy Of Hurricane Sandy

™2012 Blue Ridge Life ©Nelson County Life : Photo By Mountain Photographer Paul Purpura : Though not unheard of, certainly unusual to see the Upper Dobie Slope at Wintergreen covered in snow with Halloween only one day away. Thanks to Hurricane Sandy people living on the mountain in Nelson County awoke to anywhere from 2-6 inches of snow Tuesday morning.
