I can't believe this can hit us 2 weekends in a row :-) I'm starting to think that all my northern clients brought something with them ;-) No problem though I do love it once in awhile.

I hope it's minor. Growing up in MS, I couldn't wait to live somewhere that got snow. My hubby and I moved to Northern VA and lived there for 9 years. The second winter we lived there, we got 2 feet. That cured my love of snow quickly. We've lived here in NC almost a year and the little bit we got over the weekend was enough for me. As I type this, I am watching it rain outside and am hoping it's JUST RAIN...ha.

Most models show rain, with the possibility of some flurries. I really don't think it'll be a big deal. Looks like from Central Virginia up, it'll be a much bigger deal.

I doubt anything comes of it. For some reason the models get a little trigger happy once we see a good snow. By the time we get to it they end up just being rain.

All the "newcomers" have done their snow dances.

It must have been brought into town when Al Gore came for a visit. LOL I heard they sculpted a giant ICE sculpture in his honor.

Thankfully, if it rains a lot before turning to snow, it likely won't stick to the ground, at least. When I was a kid and wanted it to snow, that was "bum news", but now, I am grateful!

Shoot, that cold rain will just cool the ground off so when it does snow it will stick from the beginning. If it rains first it will just remove the 10% effectiveness the salt brine has when sprayed.

With the way the models are trending (not to mention what my "snow nose" is saying), we're going to get two things out of this weekend's storm: diddly and squat.

Now DC on the other hand...
