Glad I'm not the only one!! Brownies during a snowstorm = pure goodness

I also love how a good snowstorm interrupts the daily routines that we all inevitably get complacent with. It's a nice surprise!

I actually like Virginia's temperature distribution over the year. Coming from the North, I always wanted to move somewhere warm year round. Well, I think I just needed more moderation in my climate. I don't mind the cooler temps in November, December, and March here. I'm still not a fan of Jan and Feb, but I can deal.

How do I drive them to a Doctor or an emergency room without plowed roads? Have as much Blizzard as you want-just not in this area!

Have you ever been in a Blizzard when the area has literally stood completely still for 3+ days? I have! Its awful!
I grew up in Culpeper and we had about 3 feet at my house. The snow had drifted over the cars to make it look like a big white lump. I was just a teen then and it was great to be off of school and not have to drive in it. I also made a ton of money shoveling out my neighbors driveways. Now that I'm older the love of the white stuff has not waned and I think driving in it is an adventure! Personally I think driving in an inch of snow is just as hard if not harder than driving in a foot of snow. Different strokes for different folks!

Great. DM me your phone number and I'll call you on my cell after the storm when I need someone to roundtrip my sick child and myself to Inova Fairfax Hospital for his steroid shot


I guess a blizzard is great for singles with big trucks and SUVs.

I hope there's some snow this winter! I've asked a few people in my various escapades around Fairfax, and it sounds like this area gets at least some snow. I'm from Indiana, and I like my white winters!!
