14 Steps To Survive The Snowpocalypse In Virginia

As I write this, Virginia is experiencing Snowpocalypse 2016….also known as “Snowmageddon” and “Winter Storm Jonas.” While “Winter Storm Jonas” seems like a bit of a formal title, there is no doubt that this storm is one for the record books.

Snow is not something we’re unfamiliar in Virginia. But, fortunately for us, it’s also not something that we deal with more than a few months out of the year. Unlike our friends to the north, who are used to two feet of snow and don’t blink when the forecast calls for a blizzard, we tend to get our snow, like most of our seasons, in moderation. So, a snow of this proportion is worthy of some attention. And in case you are not a northern transplant, here are a few tips that we thought might be useful for surviving a storm like our pal “Jonas.”

As you may have picked up, this article is only *slightly* biased toward my own personal opinion. And while I hope it’s given you a good laugh, I also want to hear about your tips for surviving the snow in Virginia. What do you find most useful in snowstorms like this one? Let us know what tips you would add to the list in the comments below!
