Updated Snow in Gettysburg

The park is closed today for snow.  I would love to catch a plane in the morning and fly up to Washington Dulles, rent a four wheel drive car, and get up to Gettysburg to take snow photos, but this isn’t the best time for me.  I was starting to feel bad about missing it until I checked the live feed.  Not as much snow as I expected, at least on Cemetery Ridge.  Well that makes me feel a little better.
