We are supposed to fly from our home in Seattle to our families (both of them) in the DC area tomorrow. Here’s the current word on the weather that’s supposed to begin at 9pm tonight in the DC area:

“In Virginia, which could see some of the highest totals, a state of emergency has been declared, with the governor’s office urging people to “prepare to be on their own for up to 72 hours.” The window is quickly closing before snow arrives.”

“As snow makes its approach from the south, confidence is growing that this powerful storm will eventually find itself ranked among the greats. In fact, December (and perhaps other) snowstorm records may be about to fall throughout the area. Louis Uccellini, director of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration’s National Centers for Environmental Prediction and a ‘godfather’ of snowstorm analysis, … said, “chances are steadily increasing for this to be a historic snowstorm.””

15-24 inches is what they’re saying for the airport we’re supposed to land at. Merry Freaking Christmas!

Yikes!  I’m surprised the airport hasn’t closed.

Thank God my dad is a Meterologist and told me to grocery shop last night! I’m fine with getting snowed in for a few days. LittlestBirds I hope you can get your flight rescheduled!

I’m getting ready for my first snowstorm in New York City. My friend who’s lived here longer says that the city gets really miserable when it snows – everything slows down, it’s impossible to get anywhere, etc. I’m hoping it won’t be too bad though – I don’t want to sit in the house all weekend!

OMG it’s pouring buckets of snow here!!!!!! I left work early at like 3 – Fiance went out to get a sled (stupid) and then decided it was too bad out and turned around but decided to come back home the back way (more stupid) and he just got back from being stranded for like 2.5 hours!!!! It was him and my neighbor, they went in a ditch, but got out. All kinds of other cars were in the ditch then. Cars everywhere facing every which way. EMS was there and firetrucks trying to get people out. He finally just got home like 10 minutes ago.

@honeybun: That’s scary that they got stuck in a ditch!  I’m glad he got home okay.
