Will they cancel school?

Ugh, when I lived in XYZ state, we had to canoe to school -- no excuses! What's up with these people?

You know what they say, April showers bring May flowers. (And what do Mayflowers bring? More people moving in!)

March is supposed to come in like a lion and go out like a lamb, but seems more like a goldfish this year... Hey, at least we won't have to put up with drought restrictions, right?

Actually, the Potomac doesn't look too bad (at least not up here in Loudoun). I don't think we'll see any flooding and the forecast has now been downsized so it looks like we won't be getting the heavy downpour this afternoon. How are things down in Old Town?

Actually, as I was reading Washington Post's Capital Weather Gang blog, a commenter stated how global warming, latitude, and climatology made it more appropriate by saying "March showers bring April flowers", given that April is DC's 2nd driest month of the year and May is really a transition to summer as in Northern VA, the last tulips usually finish the first week of the month and by the third week, roses, early lilies, peonies, dasies, and annuals such as Geraniums, Petunias, and Impatiens are in bloom and trees are just a wall of a darker green compared to April's neon green with an occassional southern magnolia blossom, and mosquitoes begin to appear around that time and temperatures often border on "too warm". That unfortunately just means that summers are longer and hotter which I dread more than winter around here (I HATED last summer, there was just no break for 4 months in the heat!) But the more rain we get this spring, the better chance of a cooler summer! But the next 8 weeks or so often feature some of the nicest weather of the year!

Actually, flooding is still anticipated for the upper Potomac as well as the Rapahannock rivers. It doesn't usually appear right away, give it a day...
