It snowed, and took out power to a lot of Crozetians, and a lot of Virginians.
Luckily, this doesn’t happen very often, and I can’t recall a heavy wet snow like this, and certainly not one that left so much tree damage in its wake. We haven’t seen this much damage, and this long of a power outage, since the derecho in 2012; that was fun.
This time though, the sound of lots of generators filled the air, and hopefully more of us were more prepared this time than last. We don’t have a generator, but I did get a portable power station and solar panels for it last year, so we did ok. That, plus a gas fireplace.
I still can’t bring myself to reactivate the RealCrozetVA Facebook page as I can’t reconcile the damage FB has done to society. And I admit that I keep my IG feeds, but Facebook remains so incredibly harmful.
