Recommended Posts

Steady light snow near DTSS. Looks like an inch on the ground.

Completely agree.  This is the 2nd winter I've had them...what a difference it makes driving in snow/ice with the Bridgestone Blizzaks.

I have a Honda Fit that I bought 4 dedicated snow tires for so when I go to Canaan I wouldn't have to worry, and wow yeah what a difference.  2WD with snow tires outperforms 4WD without snow tires.

Radar looks good for back home HoCo friends. Any confirmation?

 

Back to pixie dust here in greenbelt with some subsidence south of that band.

They really help.  I was torn between trading in the van for an AWD vehicle or putting snow tires on it.  I think Blizzaks on a FWD are probably just as good, if not better, than all-season tires on an AWD.

Just making sure everyone knows that Charlottesville is shielded by anti-snow sucktitude. Literally snowing all around us but not here. We have missed out on the last three snow events. Thanks Appalachians!

It's light, but steady just south of Rt. 40 a few miles north of your house.  Really pretty out though with a freshened look to everything.

Really confused what good closing schools early on a day like today accomplishes, with this forecast. If anything, won’t schools be releasing students into worse conditions than they would at regular closing time, considering snow supposed to end by later afternoon at latest?

But what happens if they go a full day and offices let our early?  Then you have major gridlock.

Do we have any clues as to why guidance has been particularly bad with this storm?
