Six years ago today … the Blizzard of 2009

The Blizzard of 2009. Six years ago today was also a Sunday — December 20, 2009 — and the Shenandoah Valley had been dumped on with 2.5 feet of snow. Looking back at the pictures, it was truly a winter wonderland in the week of Christmas. That huge snow was the beginning of a very snowy winter that lasted into March 2010. Here are the photos I posted on that day.

Today we woke to 23 degrees but temps have been warm recently, and are forecast to be in the upper 60s for Christmas. What a difference six years makes….

The picket fence and gate were almost covered with more than 2 feet of snow on December 18-19, 2009.
