December 4th, 2010 will go down in history as the first snow fall to occur in my town and area. Though it was only between a dusting to an inch in some places, it did scatter the ground, covered vehicles, and covered rooftops. The weather is still cold and it is giving us a look at what forecasters are saying could be another cold and snowy winter here in Eastern Virginia.
There is still a little snow on the ground from last night and today I will sit back and turn on my Satellite TV Sports Packages and watch football games. My anticipation for the first snow is very different than it was from my younger days. When I was younger, I could not wait for that first snow. It meant no school and being able to go outside and have fun. These days, it is cold weather and sitting back and looking at the beauty of the snow.
It seemed like it would never snow here but over the past decade or so, every winter it snows here. Last winter was especially brutal and went down as one of the snowiest on record. Though the first snow of the year has arrived, I really don't expect it to snow as much as it did last year.
