It snows in March
We are all tired of the grayness and wetness that has been our unusual lot in the Virginia northern Piedmont over the last year. Our winter has not been particularly cold, the temperatures dipped below 10F ( -12C) only a few times, and briefly at that. But it has been grey, cloudy, foggy even when not raining or snowing – with too few sunny clear crisp days – and so it seems this winter is never going to end. Wet snow fell yesterday March 8 on ground already saturated.
Still… looking back at the last few years, snow in mid-March is pretty common.
