I believe in the free speech that liberals used to believe in, the economic freedom that conservatives used to believe in, and the personal freedom that America used to believe in.

It’s Just One Snowmaggedon After Another

Just as Washington D.C. is starting to dig out from Saturday’s blizzard, there’s the prospect of more on the way:

In the aftermath of the weekend’s massive snowstorm, the region came to grips with the fact that digging out will take days, even as more potentially paralyzing winter weather appeared headed this way by Tuesday.

Snow might be falling again by the time the first snowplow arrives to carve a path into some neighborhoods isolated by about two feet of snow from the storm that ended Saturday. Although the National Weather Service said the next storm had the “potential for more than five inches,” other forecasts indicated that as much as a foot might fall.

“Four inches is a pretty good bet, and eight inches or more isn’t out of the question,” said Dan Stillman, a meteorologist with The Washington Post’s Capital Weather Gang. “It will start out Tuesday afternoon or evening, possibly as a mix of sleet and snow. But after that, it will be mainly snow, with the heaviest overnight into Wednesday morning.”

Ugh. Just, ugh.

    Can’t wait for 5-12″ more inches on top of the 30+ that we already have in Falls Church. Still haven’t dug out more than a footpath in my driveway or on the street.

  2. Something tells me that this is going to be a “lost week” for many D.C. area residents, businesses, and schoolchildren.

    As I told you on Facebook, Doug, I prefer “Snowpocalypse” for this one; “Snowmaggedon” was in December.

    I don’t know what to call the next one. I’m out of glib biblical references.

    Oh, and when they bumped it up to 10-20 inches, I had to laugh. So we have the potential for more than 50 inches in 6 days. Unreal.
