Default Snow!

Semi snowed in here in Richmond, VA - VA is getting worked pretty good right now. We aren't use to too much snow and have about 6 inches on the ground now and about 6 more waiting to fall if i understand correctly (reports keep changing).

Anyone else in this mess? Personally i find snow annoying but every once in a while when you have all the necessities it isn't bad just sitting inside and relaxing.

I love snow but this year has been a bummer so far.

All you need now is some Glögg.

That ain't much snow for us northerners, but I guess if you're not used to it, it can be trouble.

Seen the radar for DC which is also getting a blast. Have fun.

Just up the road from you... I agree it sucks

Although my daughter loved it when I pulled her around the neighborhood on the body board and 100 year old sled.

Got about 3 inches out here in Pittsboro, its really nice. Just went up to the bar for a few beers and I felt like I was in a Colorado ski town! Love it, drinking a 6 pack of Racer 5 and researching my Brutus build, what a great day!

I just watched some neighbors try to back out in a small car and get stuck and try to do everything they could for about 15 minutes trying to get it to move.

They finally gave up and started clearing a path to pull it back into the spot. The guy started spinning the tires trying to drive back into the spot - i thought for sure he was going to spin out when he took off and wreck into 2 cars - luckily for him he didn't even though he clearly did not know how to drive in snow.

i really wish he had hit a car - i had the camera out trying to take stealth pictures but missed all the good ones.

We have about 6 inches in Fairfax, VA. Good thing the kitchen is stocked. Getting ready to brew in the next few days so making some starters and fixing up my kegerator. Kegs are getting chilled outside while I start modding the fridge. Just hope the UPS lady shows up with my new regulator and we are all set.

No UPS lady. Apparently after a failed first attempt (Friday) they delay shipment for 2 days. Sucks.
