THE NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE IN STERLING VIRGINIA HAS ISSUED A BLIZZARD WARNING ... WHICH IS IN EFFECT UNTIL 6 PM EST THIS EVENING. THE WINTER STORM WARNING IS NOW IN EFFECT FROM 6 PM THIS EVENING TO 6 AM EST SUNDAY.

Note to the putz in the white Honda: The road is snowpacked, and therefore white. The snow is falling fast, cutting visibility, and turning everything white. You are driving a white car, on a white background. So TURN ON YOUR DAMN HEADLIGHTS!!!

Snowy scenes inside...

Rest of the set here.

Probably going to end up with 2 feet here in NoVa. Airports are mostly shut down. Local roads becoming impassable.

People forget that this is the South. Over a foot of snow, well, just doesn't happen here, so no one is ready for it. Rough times for local merchants expecting to make some cash the weekend before Christmas.

Town's gonna be shut down until half past Tuesday.

I thought it would be smart to wait til later to go get beer.
Now it's too late.
Odd the Poconos are supposed to get less than those in the south but then again it is a southern storm.

I drank what was left of the vodka last night, just like 2 shots.  If that.  What was I thinking?!?!?!

And here in SoCal by FlightTest (4.00 / 2) #2 Sat Dec 19, 2009 at 01:47:51 PM EST
It's 80 all-American degrees.   :P

And we're whining because the Santa Ana winds are blowing.  Hopefully they stop before the firebugs come out or we'll have a white Chrifsmas from the ash falling from the sky.


My dad got 26 inches by technician (2.00 / 0) #6 Sat Dec 19, 2009 at 10:02:46 PM EST
and more still falling in SW VA.

I do miss snow. Not, like, living in it...but I wouldn't mind getting a little.
