Let it Snow, Let it Snow, Let it Snow

Virginia's biggest winter storms have the great "Nor'easters". At times, nor'easters have become so strong that they have been labeled the "White Hurricane". Three 20th century winter storms have made history in Virginia. The first was in early March of 1962 and was known as the "Ash Wednesday Storm." It lingered off the cost for days and caused $200 million dollars in erosion and flooding damage due to the high winds that accompany a nor'easter. The other two were an ice storm that deposited up to 3 inches of ice in parts of Virginia in 1994 and an unexpected storm in 1999 that left 9 to 12 inches across northern Virginia.
