WP put this up on it's front page yesterday, all (seemingly) TV stations picked it up - yes, there's a storm coming...
So last PM at Costco (W.Ox) saw a guy w/8 gal milk, packs of TP & PT, enough bread & cheese to constipate a herd of ... whatever, and the last handful of snow shovels. PANIC NOW!!!!

Only things I'm thinking about related to this storm is that my date on Sunday night is likely not gonna happen and my roommate's mother coming in from Ohio may be stuck with us for an extra night.

He's making an effort to conserve his TP by eating the cheese. Smart fella!

The sensationalists (aka the media) are saying

"....as the storm moves toward the Washington region, it could become a hybrid storm with gale-force winds, flooding, heavy rain and yes, forecasters say, snow. "

Well I guess I'll at least make sure I have a full tank of gas in my car. That was a terrible experience being on empty during the big power outage over the summer.

The noon news says "something maybe" Tues. afternoon (your date should be fine) - it'll likely bring us rain/winds. No snow has been forecast (that's in the mountains)

I didn't realize a storm was coming, but I just went to the Capital Weather Gang's site. My wife and I were planning on spending the weekend in the Port Haywood area, now I'm wondering if this may ruin our plans.

It'll probably be a little wet (depending on when you plan to come home).

I suspect we will have some wind and rain. Probably won't know exactly what to expect until Saturday. However, with how easily we lose power and the length of time it can take to restore power, it would not be a horrible idea to have a few days supply of bottled water and some candles on hand (which most have anyway). And a fully charged cell phone.
