I'm glad I don't get that shit here.

So, what's the deal? You don't get snow very often or something?

First snow here in almost 2 months.

Hard to measure because the wind blew it around a good bit. I'd say 6"-8".

That's just a dusting!! When you can't open your front door because the show is too deep then call me! LOL

We live in south Stafford. We got about a foot of snow. Absolutely beautiful this morning when we got up. The pup went nuts playing snow plow and leaving little yellow spots.

Later, the neighborhood kids joined ours in sledding out in the meadow down by the stream. A fun day.

Lots of work too. I used the Troy Built to clear the neighbors' of driveways today. They were happy.

Pics to follow...

Early this morning...before plowing.

I know there was some water in here last night!

Centreville. Fairfax and Price Wiliam counties. Not to far from ya.

John, it looks like you live near me. I recognize the quarry and split rail fences on Braddock. I live in South Riding, over where 50 meets up with 606/Old Ox road. Shoveling today was a bitch!!
Link Posted: 2/12/2006 1:41:02 PM EDT
Man, I wish we got some of that snow. I love 4x4ing it through that slop.
Link Posted: 2/12/2006 1:42:48 PM EDT

Yep, that's snow.

Y'all hardly ever see that much huh?
Link Posted: 2/12/2006 1:45:19 PM EDT
I remember when it looked like that here. We havent seen more than 4" in about 4-5 years. I miss the 14" snowfall of the 1999-2000 winter...

Incredible.

Those are some beautiful pix. When there is a snow like that it is a different indoor life - knowing you are bound unless you are willing to make serious preparations.

Hopefully, a nice raging fireplace going about now

Amazing how many trees took to the ground here for just a foot. My folks on LI got 26". youch.

And now they are calling for it to be 60 degrees on Friday. Dangit! I want more snow.

Here is the tree which fell when I was plowing my driveway. Heard it snap and the power lines broke and the phone / cable bounced around. Power was out 24 hours. I finally had a real life situation to use the backup generator and it worked perfectly. I had water, lights and even TV.

The fences and hedge row gave it away. I also have a friend who lives about 1 mile from the rock quarry you have pictured. That sucker is HUGE

Cool. I am about 3 miles away from that quarry.

I'm in Bristow, and I take that Rte. 29 "scenic route" through battlefield on the way home from work sometimes.

Love the view, but you do not want to be behind those damned dump trucks from the rock quarry.

Two lane road = Arrrgh!

Actually it's both.

Some of the pics were taking in Manassas Battlefield Park and some were taken in Bull Run Park.

It s not a big deal. At no point have I complained about the snow except that I have complained that we did not get more.

This thread is about nice pictures. Not southerners afraid of snow. And NOVA is not the south anyway.

we barely got a dusting down here in Richmond. No shoveling for me, woot.

The Fed.Gov can call the park Bull Run State Park, be we Manassholeians call it Manassas Battlefield.
