Snowmuppet?

I hope that Brickmuppet's legendary bad luck decides to take this weekend off. He, and everyone else in eastern Virginia, are going to have enough trouble as it is.

They're saying that DC might get three feet of snow, which would be amusing. The mayor of DC has already apologized for not handling it well, even before the snow began to fall.

1 As another DC area resident, the news story is conflating two similar stories.  There was an unexpected and very badly timed dusting of snow on Wednesday, which people were not prepared for and messed up rush hour.  That's what the mayor has been apologizing for.  It took everyone by surprise.  While DC's government is incompetent at best, the Wednesday snow was exactly at the wrong time to screw up rush hour, so it's understandable.  The locals are prepared for the massive storm that is now visible outside my window, as much as possible.

2 IIRC, Brickmuppet lives somewhere near Norfolk. He isn't in DC.

3 The snow is practically gone down here. We had 3 inches this morning and its just patches now. Just west of us though it's bad.
