Did I mention that I love snow? We had a nice little winter storm come through Sunday and Monday here in Northern Virginia, leaving close to a foot of snow in its wake. It wasn’t a blizzard, although you would think so from the way D.C. area folks reacted (raiding the grocery stores, closing the schools, and generally panicking).

By mid-day Monday most of the roads were passable, and my Subaru (experiencing its first snow storm) handled things wonderfully in the un-treated apartment parking lot and other slippery areas. Today things are basically back to normal, minus leftover snow and ice in yards and sidewalks and a few areas of black ice on the roads.
