Word this morning from the Rappahannock County sheriff and county administrator, and Washington Mayor John Sullivan: The Christmas in Little Washington parade is cancelled.
“Have conferred with John [McCarthy] and Sheriff again,” said Sullivan by email. “It’s just too risky . . . some participants dropping out for understandable reasons . . . weather, weather, weather. Truly disappointing but safety first. Thanks to everyone for all of the effort! Spread the word.
Indoor activities (artisans markets and free performances at the Theatre at Washington) are on as scheduled.
If you head into town, dress warm, and drive carefully (especially on the way home); temperatures won’t get much above 30 degrees, and snow and ice pellets are expected to continue falling lightly until the rain (and freezing rain) comes later in the afternoon.
