Blizzard of 2010 (#1)

A major snowstorm is expected to move into the Metro DC area tomorrow.  Beginning late morning and running through Saturday night, we are forecast to get anywhere from 16-28 inches of snow.  Winds will make blizzard-like conditions at times.  Friday is Kelly’s day off so she will be home.  We’re keeping Zach home from daycare.  I’m working from home tomorrow.  In the Winter 2009-10 this is our second “major” storm and our 4th significant snow since late December.  Snow totals in our area have already reached 36 inches this season, and tomorrow could put us in line to break a 100-year record.

I have an 8:30 am meeting to call into.  The snow is expected to start around 10 or 11 am.

We have plenty of logs for the fire and other essentials.  (The local news, in cahoots with local businesses, are assuring the public that we will be trapped in our homes for 5 days and that there will be a run on everything, including Viagra and Cialis.)  Plus we live right next to Target.  I just keep thinking that all these storms will make the arrival of spring that much more dramatic. That’s what I tell myself.

Storm updates via Twitter beginning tomorrow and throughout the weekend.
