The rolling hills of Four Corners are covered in a blanket of white today. The snow accumulated to 3-4 inches in most places, providing more than enough for sledding at popular spots like Pinecrest Park and Sligo Middle School. Unfortunately, the snow was too powdery to build a snowman or have a snowball fight (though I did see some people try). As of 12 PM most of the residential streets are passable. Some have been plowed multiple times, while others seem to have only gotten sand. Some streets are completely clear with dry pavement. The major roads like Colesville and University are mostly just wet, but the sidewalks along them haven't been touched, and I doubt they will be. This snowfall is nothing like Snowmaggedon, but it is the most significant snowfall of this winter to date. Happy New Year!
