    Snow

    To disable ads, please log-in.

    It's coming, apparently, today. Looks like anywhere from 1-3" in the DC area. Our first of the season. Luckily, it's been decently warm, so hopefully, it will stick only to the grassy areas.

    Yea, we expect to wake up tomorrow with 1-3."
    I'm ready. Time to bring the bikes in and get the snow shoes out!

    It's just started by me; great big flakes. I thought it would hold off until afternoon, which would have given me time to see my mother (in ICU as of yesterday) and buy dry cat food, which I'm completely out of (so MUST get today!).

    Just rain for me... I'm so sick of the rain... I would rather it be snow so that everyone stays home since they cannot/will not drive in it. That way I could finish my Christmas shopping in peace!

    We (Milwaukee area) got a decent dusting Thursday night/Friday. Hanging around on the grassy areas. Wished I'd gotten a picture Thursday night on way home from cycling class of the bike on the rack with big snowflakes all around.

    Yeah, we're getting big wet flakes. I cleared about an inch off my car before -- very wet and heavy. I had to go in to work today but I think it will be okay getting home because they're not expecting the roads to be too bad. I might even try to get some xmas shopping in later this evening.

    So far the main roads here are just wet. There's a little slush on the residential streets that are always treated last, but nothing severe.

    Seriously. I need to go to the grocery store so I hope the shelves are not bare.

    We rode to Costco this morning. Hazy and a little sunny when we set out...full on snow by the time we got home. Even got flipped the bird--I guess for taking the lane in order to stay out of the mucky shoulder.

    Now that we're home and warm and slurping through the hot wine, it's beginning to look a lot like Christmas!

    We got about 8" yesterday and today. I shouldn't have bothered shoveling it yesterday, because it was the dry powdery type, and the wind just put it right back on the sidewalk and steps.

    I didn't expect anything to stick since we haven't even had a freeze yet, but somehow we accumulated around 3 inches. I guess my 30 mile ride tomorrow will be on the rollers
    I'd rather be swimming...biking...running...and eating cheesecake...

    sounds like its supposed to be in the 40s tomorow after dipping into the 20s tonight. It might be a bit wet for a pleasant ride.

    I'm afraid the roads will be too wet and messy. Better safe than sorry.
