I went into work for a few this morning, nothing on the ground at all when I left around 5:50AM. I made a run for it back home around 8am (McLean to Woodbridge), took me ~2 hours. 123 was crappy, 495 and 95 were crappy but moving - most folks used the slow and steady wins the day mentality with a few knuckleheads who thought their driving skills were far superior to what they really were. Ramp from 95S to Dale Blvd was closed so wound up having to go down to 234 and come back north, Rt 1 was ugly because of the hills.

Stay off the roads folks, especially if you drive a crappy car with bald tires, if you're scared to drive in the snow, or any weather really, or if you have never driven in snow before. I saw way too many white knuckled drivers out there - and I should have stayed my a$$ home.

That all said, it's a pretty snow, if not heavy. Lots of trees down. Good for sledding though!

Yes, experiencing the same due the heavy weight of the snow, several branches off and several trees down.

I'm in Woodbridge and easily got a foot of snow. Rhododendron bush toppled over and a few branches on the dogwoods snapped. At least I'm not the neighbor who had 2 pine trees topple over. One missed his deck but the big one snapped the top and landed on his roof. Everyone was ok, but penetrated into the daughter's room

I just finished digging myself out as I need to drop off family fight an early morning flight tomorrow at BWI. Helped a couple neighbors dig out as well.

I'm federal but we don't follow OPM guidance and we're still open since we're at maximum telework. Good thing I'm still off till Thursday.

Times like this I'm glad we sold our house a few years back. No more shoveling out the driveway. Although, as we got older our kind neighbors used to come by with their snow blower and do our driveway before we even got dressed!

Sun is back out and ready to melt the snow. Measured 12" in my area.

Be sure to brush all the snow off your outdoor plants and shrubs.

Freeze coming tonight and will snap them off if it has not already.

Closings are already in for tomorrow. Not sure the need for this as the schools should now be prepared to have classes online.

2 hours sounds more appropriate tomorrow as after the sun comes up, melting will be in full mode.

I was thinking along the same lines. So glad I’m in by Fredericksburg and don’t have to go anywhere or worry about trees as we had been on an acre wooded lot at Lake Anna with a row of huge, beautiful evergreen cedars. Knowing what I’ve been seeing on FB feeds they have a lot of trees down out there, and am SO glad it’s no longer my problem.

In the early morning the roads were fine, but visibility was lousy, as I posted yesterday. Not long after that it started accumulating. By 8:30 I was starting to worry. We left work early, just before 9 and slowly made our way home. We made it, but our normal 10 minute drive took 35-40 minutes. This morning we were very careful, but made it to work without a problem, although there were icy spots.
