Took these pics from my apartment this morning. It is supposed to keep snowing all afternoon and into the night. Maybe another 4 or 6 inches.
We already have about 6 to 8 inches on the ground, and it rained this morning. Now the temp is supposed drop into the 20′s this afternoon. That means all the snow and rain already on the ground is going to freeze solid, and the new snow is going to cover it up.
People in Richmond are horrible when it comes to dealing with the snow. If the forecast calls for an inch, they clean out the milk and bread isles at the grocery store, and line up at the pumps to fill up their vehicles (although, most of them are not going to be driving during the storm), and shut down every school within 20 miles.
Wonder what the people that live in upstate NY think about that? I can easily guess! Trust me, if you have never seen lake effect snow first hand, you really don’t have a clue as to what that really means. Imagine 54 inches of snow in 24 hours….uh huh, that’s right.
Hey Richmond, VA., be cool, stay off the road, and the DOT will have everything cleaned up in a day. I am sure most of you can suffer staying off the friggin road for a day. All will be well, relax, have a beer, smoke a joint, build a snowman. Whatever keeps your ass at home and off the highways.
