King George and Spotsylvania counties closed tomorrow and Page county as well

Stafford and EZF 2hour delay.  Not sure why.  I wish my boss would delay work by 2hours.

Watching the game and drinking a beer. Who else is drinking beer, and what are you drinking? (sorry- bud, coors light, etc does not qualify here, lol)

I am drinking a Dogfish Head Pennsylvania Tuxedo. A really good, and different, winter/backwoods hunter themed PA. Brewed with local spruce tips! plus 8.5% abv.

Knocked back a couple Aslin beers today while in some care of the (nearly) 4-month-old: Double-Dry-Hoppes Orange Starfish and A Small Town in Ontario. Small Town is OK, but all the Orange Starfish beers are great.

Got the text earlier. As long as they don’t freak out, I imagine the kids will have a school day. Maybe early dismissal if they get a little jittery. But as long as my daughter gets her half-day of preschool in, she’ll be happy. She’s been miserable being out for basically the last three weeks!

Just saw a Larry Cosgrove map that showed a good southeast chunk of Virginia received deep satisfying snows while the western part including yours truly got very little. I have been raging over it all night, lmao. Additionally, I already know I will get very little in the way of ZR tomorrow. I'll get about four droplets of regular rain. None of that rain will freeze on contact. But, the PM rush hour will be easy and smooth. There will be no ice at all anywhere in the DC area tomorrow or tomorrow night. Some roads are white with tons of road salt. It's terrible what we are doing to the environment, but hey, at least the politicos are fine. Cover your azz, spread an inch of salt over all Prince William County roads. The environment is shot to hell with salt but at least the political thing was done exactly and correctly.

 

When it comes to snow, I dont need road salt. I have a shovel, and I'll shovel the entire region out of the snow, all by my lonesome. Thats what I do best.

One thing I would like to know is, How is all that moisture to our west tonight, going to evaporate by 2pm Monday?

I am sure that it can, and that it will, and that Monday will be chilly but mostly dry day and night, but I would really like to understand HOW.

Aaaaaand the fear of freezing drizzle wins out over the 1.3 million metric tons of salt on the Fairfax County roads.

Congrats, students. :thumbsup:

There is a reason Faifax slipped from second to third in wealthiest counties in America

I'm really surprised (and a bit miffed - wanna go home!) that MCPS is holding the line on staying open all day. Bold move - let's see if it pays off.

I bet they are scrambling to see how fast they can get the buses back to the early starting schools.

I posted it in the storm thread I think but they said they're re-evaluating and will announce decision by 1030 AM.
