No one was expecting it, but a dusting of snow Christmas Eve gave the Woodbridge area the White Christmas of song and legend.
The light snow began late Monday evening, so that before midnight, at least lawns were covered with a respectable covering of the white stuff.
Roads were for the most part clear, and there wasn't news of accidents from the covering.
The National Weather Service had predicted a 20 percent chance of snowfall Christmas Eve. Temperatures hovered right around freezing - just enough to keep the snow as a decorative element for the holiday.
The Christmas Day forecast predicts a chance of rain and snow in the early morning with no significant accumulation. The day should finish out partly sunny, with a high near 44 degrees.
