It rarely snows in Southeast Virginia, so when it does, even a little, it is big news. Today was one of those days. It had rained for two days so when temperatures dropped in the early morning hours we got a dusting of snow. The resulting icy roadways turned morning commutes into harrowing adventures. Schools closed or delayed opening and accidents tied up traffic for hours. There wasn't enough snow for a good winter photo but the light white crust highlighted the pattern of lines on my backyard deck. Forecasts are calling for mid 60's by the end of the week, so spring will soon return. Canon G10, 1/13s, f4.0, ISO 400, 30mm equivalent focal length.
