The Inn at Little Washington’s chicken coop weathered this week’s late-season winter storm in colorful style. Wind-whipped snow piled up quickly throughout the county, beginning in the early morning hours of Wednesday. By 7 a.m., already seven inches of wet, heavy snow had fallen in Amissville, according to the National Weather Service. Nearly 2,500 Rappahannock Electric Cooperative customers – more than half of REC’s customers in the county – were without power by mid-afternoon.
