 0.1  1.13  33.9  Most of this storm for the Glen Allen and Richmond area was rain and freezing rain with some sleet and very little snow. Glen Allen had just a little over 0.1 inches of glaze but glaze isn't counted as snow so the 0.1 inches will not be added to our 6.6-inch winter total. The final forecast for the area was for rain just not freezing rain and on the morning of the 14th there were over 40,000 homes in the Richmond Petersburg area without power. But the area got off lucky as CT, PA and western NY had more than a foot of snow.
