It seems like everyone on the Eastern Seaboard is getting snow — everyone, of course, but Washington. Even areas that are much farther south than the capital got snow from this week’s storm, like Richmond, where the flakes were flying on Monday afternoon.

Blacksburg, Va. — home to Virginia Tech — was among the snowed-in on Monday afternoon. Students took to Drill Field to celebrate the storm with an epic snowball fight that reportedly ended with the “civilian” students winning out over the ROTC kids. The result doesn’t give us much faith in the inevitable battle of mankind against the extraterrestrial invasion, but hopefully we won’t wage that war with snowballs.

Snowfall totals ranged from a couple of inches in southeast Virginia and North Carolina to over 10 inches in the Appalachian Mountains.
