(WTOP)   The DC area is bracing for a winter storm of gargantuan proportions that is expected to bring the morning commute to its knees and turn the entire region into an icy hell of snarled traffic and human misery. Total accumulation? Eh, about an inch   ( divider line

Roukzeptea23: And DC drivers need to get their stuff together, like you said. Being a moron doesn't make it better. :(

I lived in DC for 3 yrs, and DC drivers obey traffic laws just fine.

It's just that the traffic laws they obey are from their home country.

If you live there, STFU and go get my new registration.

j.lunatic: Endive Wombat: Lots of disposable income in the DC area means people by big fancy cars "With Traction Control™" (BMW, Audi, Mercedes) or giant SUVs/Pick-Ups with 4x4 and for some reason think that because their car was marketed to them has having auto sensing stability control and 4 wheel drive that means they can drive as they normally do if not harder and the car will take care of itself.

tl;dr - People are idiots

Several years ago I had to go to work in my little econobox, even though the Beltway was unplowed and snow was still coming down. I was driving cautiously (or timidly, depending on your perspective), and got to the worksite safely. While on the Beltway I saw at least one SUV that had run off the road.

/The schadenfreude was delicious.

My first year I moved out here, that winter I am driving slow and cautiously and H2 is riding my ass.  He passes me on the right, honks and flips me off.  It was snowing, not too hard, but there was prob an inch on the ground and there was no salt or plowing yet.  About 8 minutes and 3 miles later, Mr. Douche H2 has spun out and ended up down in the lane separator (ditch) that separates east and west traffic on rt 7 in Sterling.  I rolled down my window as I passed him slowly, honking my horn and yelling "WOOT! WOOT, NICE JOB DOUCHE BAG!!!"

I read that as "storm of orangutang proportions" and it made more sense. I need to go back to bed.

Look all you snarkasauruses, the roads aren't even 100% clear and they didn't even delay schools.

We're getting tougher.

forget about the schools being closed on Monday because it was wet outside.

That's about right for the Nova-D.C. 'burban clusterfark.
Next step: Go to nearest supermarket and buy every single bit of the bread, milk, water, ice melt, and snow shovels.
