    They’ve already pre-treated the roads around Ballston.

    Might actually get snow this time around. According to my weather app, we have three chances: Wed, Thu and Fri!

  • ACDC Hack

    The county has also issued a statement that the snowfall will be used as a justification for raising the tax rates this year……….

    • Observer

      and to remind residents that snow must be shoveled as it falls or you may be subject to the snow removal ordinance.

  • Gang No Fan

    Although the Capital Weather Gang points out that not much accumulation is expected

    In that case I’m expecting about five inches.

    • Glebe Roader

      This is one the forecasters seemed to hit on the head. A dusting to 1 inch was predicted. Looks like about an inch to me.

        Yep. But he’ll forget this one.

    • Luna

      it’s GLOBAL WARMING!!!

  • Swag

    Oh, great. Of course it’s gonna snow the morning that I have to be in Crystal City at 5AM for a breakfast briefing. Damn you, Odierno.

  • Alex

    Don’t fear the snow! Fear your fellow drivers!

  • Buckingham Beauty

    Cue obligatory over-reaction: Get you milk, bread, and toilet paper now!!! We’re all gonna die!!!

  • Westover Leftover

    Abandoned your cars now!

  • Bubba

    I don’t understand why the county did not treat N Barton…that is going to be a major clusterF this morning – already a bus stuck there at 7:30

    • CrystalMikey

      Must have just missed that, I drove down N. Barton at 7. Sure it wasn’t plowed, but certainly passable if you drive right.

  • CrystalMikey

    Wheeeee….snow!
