Nelson County, VA

As Tommy had been predicting in his weather late last week, an early spring snowstorm hit the area on Sunday. Snow began falling in areas around Lynchburg Sunday morning. It moved north into other counties including Nelson where BRLM is based on the eastern side of the BRP north of Nellysford, VA.

Route 151 southbound traffic slowly moves along in the heavy snowfall Sunday afternoon – March 24, 2013.

As we first reported on our BRLM Facebook page, Nelson County Public Schools called of Monday classes around 6PM Sunday evening. Most other schools area schools soon followed. Several accidents were occurring late Sunday afternoon all across the area in Nelson and beyond.
