1987 Veterans Day. On the 10th it was 60 degrees, forecast for the 11th was for scattered showers.
Many locales got over 15". Thunder snow was common. Cars were abandoned all over the roads. Very happy to have had a Subaru with all wheel drive.

15" will boot fark most Canadian cities so I'm not going to get on your case for that one. Thundersnow is badass and I've only ever seen it once in my life.

But that's the most poorly laid out, hard to read, inaccurate and useless weather report I've ever seen. Where is the grid? What is the probability of precipitation? What are the actual average values?? WHAT IS THE DEW POINT?!?!

Please, to most Americans 'dew point' is the places in the yard not to step on the way to the car...

In Maryland, most of the people who cant drive in the snow and get into accidents have all wheel drive SUVs.

That's pretty much everywhere from NYC South..  Snow is nothing new here but nothing beats Mid Atlantic smug w/ over powered vehicles..

AWD does not make you impervious to slipping and sliding on ice, no matter how big and heavy your SUV may be.

My first year in NoVa, during my first winter and first time driving in snow, I was taking my time in my little Honda Civic, I was going the speed limit, in the slow lane.  Apparently Mr. "I've got a lot of money to waste on a giant H1 Hummer" failed to grasp that yes, physics still apply to you to browski.

He tailgated me for about 3 miles, got frustrated, then passed me.  He ran an almost red light and was out of sight.  A few minutes later, he was 20' down in a ditch trying to get out.  I rolled down my window, honked my horn, caught his attention, flipped him off, and told him to go fark himself.  I thought he was going to rip his damn steering wheel off.  Too funny, too funny man...

You need to come to New England more often. Hell in the last 5 years, I've seen thunder snow a half dozen times at least. It's terrifying to go to the bathroom and come back and there's 6 more inches of snow on the ground

"...unseasonably chilly temperatures and the opportunity for some conversational snow flurries."

Wait, Congress can even filibuster snow?

I'm pretty sure that ice falling from the sky is one of the signs of the apocolypse here.

I once went to a grocery store at the start of a flurry and charged with a buggy to the cracker aisle, dumped in an armload of ritz and screamed "DEAR GOD, YES THERE'S SOME LEFT!" Then charged to the orange juice and repeated with 2 gallons.  People started assessing their milk and bread decisions.  One woman charged the juice when I turned to leave.

For the baby, not for some horrible flurry-related accident. I should have clarified.

Yeah, I am NOT looking forward to my Rockville to Dulles commute tomorrow.

Travel conditions themselves aren't the problem. Drivers alternately driving like maniacs or panicking and totally seizing up is the problem. We just don't get much snow here to practice in so people panic. That and we have a huge population of transients here to work from other states which might not be accustomed to snow either.

She's got studded shows mounted on rims in Chas. SC.
When it snows, she gets free groceries by icking up the block's shopping for them.

Just start a fark advise thread if she goes into labor.  I'm sure many farkers are qualified medical staff.  If nothing else we'll have the kid named before it arrives.

Badmoodman: Wait, Congress can even filibuster snow?


No, Just the cleanup. Streets will remain unplowed for months after this flurry. When your city is managed by Congress, even a crack head can be mayor.

Flew home just before a blizzard which would take about 7 days to settle. Went to a big box store early the next day for supplies, mainly cat food, litter, etc. Early is 10 am.

Watched the news report that night of the bare shelves in all the grocery stores and the shopper violence.

Got tired of shoveling one to two feet of snow off the van every few hours. Wasn't driving anywhere, just didn't want at two foot thick skating rink on the roof.

Good times. Now the problem is hoping for a single freeze sometime before February to take out the fleas in the yard.

I'm lucky. Ten minute drive to the park & ride, then let someone else do the rest. But yeah, the traffic is going to be really bad unless OPM decides to allow liberal leave/telework. They've been more liberal about doing that lately. We'll see.

you mean that flurry 2 years ago?  Or the flurry in 2009?  Because that's about all I remember for the past 10 years...

If the roads weren't already destroyed, I'd be annoyed by the studs.

Imma gonna 'splain it to ya...

See, when it's all snowy and stuff outside a lot of people look out the window and say to themselves, "Self?" they say, "I'm not going to go out in that shiat to get the paper, let alone drive somewhere."

So now they have all of this extra time on their hands in the morning when they are usually rushing around trying to find their keys and hey, french toast.
