I should have had faith. I did my snow dance last night, even dreamed of snow among other things and woke up to… nothing. No snow outside, just a faint white dusting of salt that had been forced into a single line in the middle of the road by passing cars. Checked OPM Status and no change, the Post reported we were in for a big snowfall, but I didn’t see squat.
That was about 6:15 or so this morning. I go take my shower, get dressed, listen to a little NPR and look out the window again near 7am and see the above with more and more big white fluffy flakes coming down. YAY!
I don’t know if the temps are conducive to it sticking, but it sure looked pretty. Not some wee drizzly snow, but big ol’ flakes! I don’t want it to paralyze the region, but a day off wouldn’t be too bad. So long as it isn’t like the year I got snowed in with someone I’d only just started dating. I’ll take my stir-crazy alone, thank you very much!
Quick Poll: Umbrellas in the snow (just snow, not a wintry mix)? Yea? Nay? Depends on the volume? Just a chick thing?
Anyway, locals be careful out there if you gotta go out there today. It doesn’t seem to matter where in the US you are, the statement “_____ residents don’t know how to drive in the snow” seems to always hold true.
