This past weekend brought our first big snowfall of the season to the Capital Region. How much did we get?

Maybe like me when you first woke up yesterday morning you were a little disappointed in how much snow fell! But after a morning lull, the flakes kept flying and Winter Storm Ember did end up bringing the first big chunk of snow for the season.

It ended up being a manageable amount to make cleanup somewhat easy, but enough to head out and enjoy the splendor of the season - my kids and I got some long overdue snow tubing in!

We may not have much more time to enjoy this fresh blanket of snow with heavy rain on the way mid-week Tuesday into Wednesday, according to News Channel 13. Combined with the snowmelt this storm could bring potential flooding.
