I trying to make it to Blacksburg this afternoon, should I cancel?
I think you would encounter some bad weather along the way on I-81. It would be ok to Staunton but then snow looks like it will be heavier south with 2-4 inches possible by this evening in Blacksburg. You may want to wait until tomorrow morning to play it safe.
Why are you all so panicky? ... closing schools, can't drive or fear of driving, running out and buying 5 months of food supplies and generally FREAKING-OUT even when there's a dusting of snow... you're all behaving like sheep... like herded cattle when this occurs... it's very funny to us northerners & mid-westerners that can effectively handle blizzard conditions without panic. It's a matter of using common sense, being confident in your driving skills, and keeping a cool head ... lol... gosh it's an inch or less for Pete's Sake!
You don't know what you are talking about. Quit commenting then and stay away.
It is the snow removal. They are not real good at getting the roads clear (Plowed, salted, etc) around here. My husband is from upstate NY he says they clean the roads off so much better up there. That driving here in the snow is much more of a headache.
to "You call this snow;" You gave the reason in your comment as to why it's always a mess here when it snows; " it's a matter of using common sense, being confident in your driving skills, and keeping a cool head." I've lived in the DC area for most of my life, and those 3 things seem to be sadly lacking whenever there's so much as a cloud in the sky in winter! Pathetic.
Media driven panic, hyped to get you all acting like crazy people, where in the end, severely over salting will be the only thing causing slippage.
Where's this snow? It's been dry as a bone the past day or so (humidity). I didn't expect any snow to fall in eastern LoCo/northern FFX today anyways.
Spray your hose on the street or better yet, get some ice cubes and throw them outside. Then you will have snow. Stop complaining!!!
It's been snowing in Hagerstown, MD for an hour now.
