If you take pictures of the snow (and really, why wouldn’t you? It’s beautiful!), please consider uploading them to flickr and tag them with “crozet” – then they will show up in the slideshow at the top of RealCrozetVA.
Updated: 11:00 a.m. As the snow began to fall Friday morning and the roads had yet to become impassable, dozens of Crozet residents rushed out to Crozet Hardware after hearing—primarily over Twitter—that the shop had received a last-minute truckload of snow shovels. By 10 a.m., more than 80 percent of the 230 shovels had been bought up.
A few doors down, the Crozet Mudhouse was doing brisk business as residents took advantage of the final few hours they could travel freely before hunkering down inside their homes. The coffee shop planned to stay open until 5 p.m. Friday and expected to re-open Saturday between 8 a.m. and 3 p.m.
With the last big storm, the best outlets for regular updates about the outside world came from The Daily Progress on Twitter, CBS-19 on Twitter, and The Hook’s blog, so folks hungry for information might check there for the best updates.
