I was still living in Charlottesville in 1987 when we got 12" of snow on a Thursday that was unexpected and another 13" that Sunday. My car sat downtown for four days until we could get down there to rescue it. Storms like that are extremely rare but lots of fun!

Generally in Virginia the further west the more it snows, the Blue Ridge Mountains are 15 minutes west of Charlottesville and get a good deal. Heres a flickr link Lawn in the snow on Flickr - Photo Sharing! which shows a normal snowfall in Charlottesville. Lately Charlottesville has been getting around half a dozen of these and a few dustings or ice storms a year.

I think it was 1997 we missed school for the whole week and I was stranded at a friend's house! We moved to Cville from Long Island, NY and maybe there we just a bunch of storms in the early 90's but I felt like I saw more snow in Cville than in New York. But in NY school was never canceled, I walked uphill to school in the snow. True
