Snowy Cinco de Mayo on Mount Rogers

This interesting aerial photograph, taken during the day on May 5, 2011, shows a thin band of snow on the crest of Iron Mountain in the foreground and two wider bands of snow on Mount Rogers on the left and on Whitetop Mountain on the right.  On Wednesday, May 4, 2011, the temperature dropped precipitously across Southwest Virginia in the evening.  It rained in Abingdon during the night but as the photo shows it snowed with just a tad of accumulation in the higher elevations.
