The DC area is being hit by Pax, the same storm system that swept through the South. We're supposed to get up to 12". The county just north of us is expecting up to 20" by tomorrow. That is crazy talk. The thing is, all it takes is a slight shift in the storm trajectory for us to end up with almost 2' of snow...
I can vouch for 3"-6" in my area as of 1:00 am when I left work early to get my butt home before the weather got worse. I changed into my snow boots before walking out the door, and I was glad I did because I was up to my ankles in the white stuff. My Danskos would have been flooded!

The wind has been gusting pretty hard on and off since I got home; it looks like a whiteout outside at times. I'm glad I was able to leave work early.
Stay safe and warm everyone!
