Snow for Spring!

We were warned that more snow could come, and it had the potential to be huge!  Never have I experienced such a late spring in NoVA before. There were no leaves on trees nor flowers to be found anywhere.  Everything was still dead and brown looking.  The latest spring ever. At least we were consoled to only expect a trace of snow.  Surprisingly, we awoke to this:

It snowed throughout the day.  Much of it melted.  Had we stayed below freezing the entire day, my son and I estimated we could have accumulated 8-10 inches of snow.

These pictures are from 1pm.When we went to bed that night, it was still snowing!  The next morning I went to the grocery store and was chatting with the cashier, who drives to work from an hour north of us. She gets up at 3am to arrive at our store by 5am to work. She said it was still snowing early this morning!  I can't imagine what the total accumulation would have been if we had stayed below freezing the entire time.
