We had our first snowfall of the year yesterday. It didn’t amount to much, but in this area it doesn’t take much snow to wreak havoc with the normal flow of things.
Many people here in the Washington, DC Metro area are originally from parts of the country that typically have substantial snowfalls each year. However, it seems that once they arrive here, they immediately lose their ability to drive when snow is falling, no matter how sparse the resulting ground cover may be.
The local weather forecasters are warning that tonight will bring “bitterly cold” weather. The temperature is expected to drop all the way down to 26°F (-3°C). And there may even be “Snow Flurries.”
In the place I was born and raised, this would be considered just another mild Winter day!
