At first glance, the “winter weather advisory” was scary:

Winter Weather Advisory – Buchanan (Virginia)
Clintwood…Grundy…Vansant…Welch…
Gary…War…Mullens…Oceana…Pineville
630 Am Est Fri Jan 7 2011

…Winter Weather Advisory Remains In Effect Until 6 Pm Est ThisEvening…

A Winter Weather Advisory Remains In Effect Until 6 Pm Est This
Evening.

* Precipitation Type: Snow Showers Of Varying Intensity

* Accumulations: An Additional 1 To 2 Inches Today…For A Event
Total Of Up To 3 Inches.

* Timing: Snow Showers Will Decrease Early This Morning…But
Then Pick Up Again Late Morning Through Afternoon.

* Impacts: Snow And Ice On Untreated Surfaces.

* Winds: West 10 To 20 Mph.

* Temperatures: Remaining In The 20s Through Today.

Precautionary/Preparedness Actions…

A Winter Weather Advisory For Snow Means That Periods Of Snow
Will Cause Primarily Travel Difficulties. Be Prepared For Snow
Covered Roads And Limited Visibilities…And Use Caution While
Driving.

Then I noted it said “Buchanan” and other places like Clintwood…Grundy…Vansant…Welch…
Gary…War…Mullens…Oceana…Pineville, etc.  No mention of Floyd or Roanoke or Christiansurg, etc.

We escaped one.

This time.
