Charlottesville Blizzard 2009 – Snowpocalypse

Charlottesville Snow - 2009

The snow came fast.

Get home and stay home.

From my experience driving in Crozet tonight, people don’t realize:

1) Stopping and/or going fast in slick conditions is bad.

2) Tailgating is snow is worse than tailgating in normal conditions.
