If there has been one mark of this winter, it has been snow. Not that its been constant, but it certainly has been frequent. Usually it has been only a few flurries or a dusting. But there was that 18.5 inches of snow which fell about the first of February. A week or so ago, a predicted dusting dropped eight inches of snow in the area. It was a heavy wet snow that stuck, it also resulted in many dropped tree limbs and branches.

About three inches of snow covered the ground and trees on Saturday, March 26, then melted on Sunday, March 27, just in time for another light snowfall.
