Snow big deal.

It snowed a week ago. Started about 4 p.m. on Sunday and ended around 1 p.m. on Monday, accumulating between 8 and 10 inches. The first snow in the Richmond area that was more than an inch or two in three and a half years.
Once it stopped snowing, it cleared up and was beautiful: trees were outlined in white and the sky was crystal blue and clear. Very pretty, very nice.

And, this being Richmond, very short-lived as well. By Thursday, the temperatures were in the sixties; by Sunday, it was 84.

That's the joy of Richmond snow storms: the results don't hang around long enough to become gray and depressing and yucky.
