Nellysford
Nelson County, Virginia

For the second time in a month a major snowstorm hit the Central Virginia Blue Ridge dumping between 5″ to nearly a foot of snow in the mountains. The event started off as mainly rain Thursday morning, but as colder air worked in during the afternoon, it all turned to snow, making roads hazardous.

Route 151 northbound near Grave Grocery just south of Nellysford was a total whiteout just after noon Thursday - March 5, 2015.

Numerous accidents occured across the area with Route 29 near Woods Mills in Nelson County shutdown after a tractor trailer blocked all four lanes. That was just one of dozens reported across the entire Blue Ridge area.

Many schools are closed on Friday as well. Here’s a list of many via The Newsplex over at CBS-19.
