Another Snow Day

It's another snow day here in southeastern Virginia.  It started snowing around 3pm yesterday and continued through the night.  There's about 6 inches on the ground this morning and that's brought our area to a standstill.  Weather like this happens so rarely that everything shuts down.  There are not enough snow plows to get rid of the stuff; what equipment they have is focused on clearing the freeways.  Consequently, all schools and colleges, most businesses, the military bases (for non-essential personnel), the bus service, and even our commissary and exchange are all closed today.  They just don't want people on the roads.

It's going to be a coffee/hot chocolate-drinking, movie-watching kind of day!
