There is snow in the forecast for the area, and what I’ve found is that, with all the varied terrain here, there is certainly no one-size-fits-all forecast that works for everyone.
For instance, the local Virginia Weather Network posted this notice on Wednesday:
And we are ready! We are now supposed to get a mix of snow, ice, and freezing rain, starting on Saturday afternoon and continuing until early Monday morning. But a new snow shovel, a surprise jigsaw puzzle (surprise for Jim; I bought the thing), and some excellent reading material says that we’ll get through it just fine.
If you have winter weather in your forecast, or you’re one of those parents bringing kids back to school after winter break, I hope you stay safe!
