It’s light, blink and you’ll miss it, but the region had some of its first snowfall this morning.

The region got nearly two inches of snow this morning in some places, the first snow in over a year for Alexandria.

Some experts had predicted that Alexandria could have another snow-less winter, though now most estimates saw snow is more likely throughout the season.

Alexandria snow plows did a test run around the city last month to get ready for the possibility of stronger winter weather ahead.
