Soldiers get out early as snow falls on Grafenwoehr
January 4, 2016
GRAFENWOEHR, Germany — The first real snowfall of winter blanketed U.S. Army Garrison Bavaria in Germany, causing some facilities to shut down early.
Most of the snow fell overnight and during the early morning. Roads were largely clear by the end of the day.
Some soldiers braved winds to take advantage of the fresh powder, breaking snowboards and sleds out of storage.
More snow was expected to fall on the area on Tuesday. Residents of Grafenwoehr, Vilseck and Hohenfels should look for updates on road conditions here.
