As I watch all of the havoc up and down the east coast, I am thankfull that Charlottesville Virginia escaped the brunt of the snowstorm.
Over the past several days it seemed like that weather forecast changed by the minute. Just a small deviation in the path of the storm would drasticallly change the snow amount. Over the past few days we heard predictions ranging from a dusting to over a foot. We were very lucky to end up with only a couple of inches.
During a normal Charlottesville winter we will see a couple of snowfalls of perhaps about 6 inches. This is not to say that we never get that 18 inch snowfall, but it is rare. Since we don't see a lot of snow in Virginia, even a couple of inches can be paralyzing. I have all wheel drive so I can usually get around if I have to, but many times it is just best to hunker down and stay home.
If you are considering a move to Charlottesville and Central Virginia, you may want to note that we have a temperate climate with four distinct seasons. Spring and Fall are my favorites with gorgeous colors. However, there is an opportunity for skiing in the winter or enjoying Virginia costal beaches in the summer.
No matter what the season Charlottesville is a great place to live!
