“First snow of season buries Greensboro

“Here’s the issue with all that snow and sleet we got Sunday:

According to the calendar, it’s still autumn — for 11 more days.

A winter-although-it’s-still-fall storm dumped a foot of snow, give or take, atop all those leaves we’re still raking.

The first snow of the season led the city of Greensboro and Guilford County to declare states of emergency Sunday.

Local schools will be closed Monday.

Most roads are drivable only by the brave or the reckless.

It’s a mess out there, folks. And winter hasn’t yet begun.

Here’s a look at what happened Sunday and what to expect over the next several days:

Snow totals

According to unofficial reports, the National Weather Service said Guilford County got between 9 and 14 inches of snow by midafternoon Sunday.
