The snow held off all day, but when it arrived it came down fast. After a day of mixed weather filled with rain and sleet, a wave of snow hit in the evening hours blanketing Beavercreek and the Miami Valley. A worker at Kroger was heard to say, “I looked out and it was normal, then I looked back and it was all white!” While it didn’t come down quite that fast, it did acumulate quickly.

Beavercreek is no stranger to mixed weather in March. In 2008 Beavercreek was hit with a blizzard that forced the cancellation of many activities including Beavercreek High School’s Weekend of Jazz for 2008. And a week following the blizzard in 2008, Beavercreek was hit by some of the biggest flooding in years.

Today’s snowfall will be nowhere near as dramatic as in years past. Only 2-4 inches are expected and a warming trend is coming that will most likely melt it away almost as fast as it arrived. Just the same, it’s a reminder of how fast the weather can change in Beavercreek in March.
