Friday morning, snow quietly begins in Charlottesville

Riverview Park, Saturday.

Saturday was another story. Cold, snow blowing.

I ran into some folk on the Rivanna trail wearing snow shoes.

Non-city sanctioned, recreation in the street. My favorite aspect of a snow storm, bipeds reclaim the commons, temporarily people, rule.

You get everything you need.–Van Morrison

THE RIVERVIEW CEMETERY COMPANY was incorporated by a group of local businessmen on December 29, 1892 with a mission to establish a cemetery “near and convenient” to the City of Charlottesville and properly ornamented with “trees, shrubbery or flowers.” In February 1892 the Company made its first land purchase of 27.95 acres from the Charlottesville Land Company for $6,987.50. Riverview continued to amass small quantities of land over the years from neighboring lot owners, residents and the Albemarle Golf Club on its western border. Local residents Henry Clay Marchant, Mrs. M.J. Burgess and J.S. Barksdale purchased the first burial plots on December 6, 1894. Seventeen more were sold between 1894 and 1899, several to board members and officers of the Cemetery Company.–Lara Day Kozak

Under normal conditions I can kayak underneath this boardwalk.

The bald cypress is fenced off, its a favorite of local deer. Usually it is high and dry.

A dog will walk. No one complaining presently about the weather being hot and dry. This is a portion of the trail that circles Charlottesville.
