Well, they called for 8" - 12" of snow. And sure enough, we got a nice blanketing of white stuff. Probably not nearly 8 inches, but significant for the DC area none the less.
Flights have been cancled (Delta airlines specifically), and there's a Snow Emergency in DC proper and no doubt there's a general sense that the city is shut down.
To bad this didn't happen on a weekday, or lots of kiddies (and maybe even my wife) would have gotten a snowday.
