Snow in Northern Virginia

Always such a joy. My normally 15 minute commute took 45 minutes at 4:00 PM. I'm so glad that I'm not still working at my old job. Tonight the temps are supposed to dip and the snow is supposed to keep falling. By tomorrow morning the roads are going to be a complete mess.

You'd think people would slow down and give more follow distance when the weather's like this, wouldn't you? But no...that'd mean admitting that it's actually! snowing!

I have always wondered what it is snow that makes so many people drive like idiots.

Between the fact that there is snow and it is after Thanksgiving (driving gets worse just by virtue of the date) the roads are a mess the majority of the time around Cincinnati.

people never think THEY are going to be the cause of a 15 car pile-up, do they?

Do you get to stay home from work? Snow is never a cause for any kind of alarm here, which makes me sad. I'd love some snow days from work ; )

Too early in the season for people to admit that ;)

Ha! We're supposed to get snow and ice tomorrow- Just in time for my in-laws' flight into town. Oh, the irony!

Hah! I live in North Carolina - you know what these fools do when it snows? Drive really FAST, so they'll get home quicker. Argh.
