Snow living up to its hype in Charlottesville and Albemarle? Color us surprised.
Locals are waking up to between 4 and 6 inches as of 7am, with more heavy, wet snow falling rapidly. According to the National Weather Service, we can expect another 4 to 8 inches during the day today. Road conditions and visibility are poor, and Dominion Power is reporting more than 21,000 outages in the county and 14,300 in the city. Venturing out would officially be a terrible idea, but if you have to, check Virginia 511 for road and traffic information before you do.
In addition to the closings listed below (to sum up: pretty much everything your taxes pay for is shuttered, plus plenty of other things), take note: JAUNT is running on a limited basis in Charlottesville.
Tell us in the comments what conditions look like near you (and where that is), and let us know if you hear of any other closures.
