If you look at the above image of the incredibly light dusting of snow on one of our deck posts and think, "EMERGENCY!! Must go to Giant and buy milk, bread and toilet paper, and must cancel all activities for the rest of the day" then you're officially a Northern Virginian.
OK, so some nasty weather is scheduled to arrive at 3pm today. Does that mean we have to be in full lock down all day?
I love it here. But time after time the weather teaches us there's no reason to panic, and time after time we do.
