We've getting less than an inch on www.weather.com for two days.

NOAA, the TV news, and WAPO all basically settled on "We're all gonna die!!!" a week ago!

Which is why the entire area just gave up and closed down at 7pm. So there we were, watching a movie, not even raining, 47 degrees, and all our phones are getting the end of the world pushes. Even the southerners were like WTF.

So anyway... We're up to two inches now with heavy snow and four people who need to be entertained.

4-8 here. Already sticking and up to half an inch.

The panic was palpable today as we ran chores here in Bethesda. Usually prefaced with "The Ides of March Storm is Heeeerrreeee!!!!"

We had a friend over to watch the Caps game and the second flakes started to fall it was as if we saw a blinding light and mushroom cloud in the near distance.

And cue Fox News Network's confusion between weather and climate.
There will come a day for every man when he will relish the prospect of eating his own shit. That day has yet to come for me.

Wow, so this may be our biggest snow total, though it seems like it'll be melted by tomorrow AM as well.

So we clocked in 5 inches, almost 6, and still coming down as light flurries. Roads are all perfectly clear, but the entire world has shut down anyway.

Yeah, everything's cancelled here as well. Big piles left by the plow though.

With snow expected on Tuesday, I think the DC area (or, at least, my co-workers) have gone from "half an inch of panic" to "half an inch of WHAT THE FUCK?!!? STOP ALREADY!"

They're not calling for anything, no. Just the apocalypse! From 70 to freezing!

Quote
A strong cold front blasts through during the midday through afternoon, but we’ll see showers and periods of rain common on both sides. There could even be a few rumbles around ahead of the front. Though it may feel warm and muggy when you leave home, you’ll almost certainly want a jacket by evening. Highs for the day may end up just after midnight. It’s also possible we’ll spike back to near 70 out ahead of the front during the day as well, particularly if we can get any rain-free time.

Either way, once we get into afternoon it’s all downhill when it comes to temperatures. Possibly in quite a hurry. We’ll be heading home with readings falling through the 50s and 40s, on their way to the 30s by late evening. Windy too, with south winds as high as 15-20 mph sustained ahead of the front and north winds as high as 20-30 mph sustained behind the front! With the advancing cold air, some snow may fall during the evening or overnight as well too (more on that below). It’s also going to be a cold night — a freeze watch currently in place across the area.

Climate Change is a myth! We're all fine!
