First snow of season yesterday

By: tropicfreak , 9:57 PM GMT on December 06, 2007

Yesterday we got our first snow of the year but unfortunately it was "short-lived" at around 9 in the morning i caught a glimpse of our first flakes.It wasn't coming down that hard,it was very light.Later at around 11:30 it really started to come down.The snow started to accumulate on the grassy areas,but at 1:30 it stopped snowing and the sun came out.Soon it started to get cloudy and we got a little sleet and snow but that was it.Still it was nice to see our first flakes of the year which actually came a little early in the season.Here are some photos of the snow in richmond and also some holiday picture.

Snow On the Bridge (Tallman)
Richmond woke up on the 2nd day of spring under a dusting of snow. This bridge to Brown's Island is laced with snow and the Island looks like a winter wonder land. By noon the show was history.
