It snows/gets very cold in Charlottesville quite frequently.
Not so sure about this. In my three years here, I can only remember two snowfalls that stuck. One was a less than two inches, the other was less than an inch. But the year before I got here, there was a big storm, so maybe it's an every-three-year phenomenon.
As for cold, if you are from a part of the country north of the Mason Dixon line, you won't think it gets cold in Charlottesville. If you are from Florida, you'll put on a parka and long underwear when the temperature dips below 40.
But if you are from a northern state, you will be shocked at the inability to cope with even a minor snowstorm. I think Charlottesville must have like one snowplow, and no one has really explained to the city how salt and sand work. Meanwhile, the pickup truck driving populace (which is rather large) thinks their 4-wheel-drive means they can drive 50 on a snow slicked road without consequences, right until they slide off the road.
