This just in: snow!

Yes, a rare April snow storm for the metropolitan Washington area. And I don’t mean flurries. Current reports suggest 1-2 inches of accumulation overnight! Plows, which had been put away for the season have to be hauled back out. Prince Georges’ County is reporting that the surprise April snow will cost them $200,000. For some reason, the thought of this amuses me.

It was 80 on Monday and I’m hoping that the roads are warm enough to melt most of the accumulation. I guess I’ll find out in the morning.
