It SNOWED in DC, time to panic. The mere mention of snow sends the city into widespread panic. Stores are packed with people stocking up for the inevitable Armageddon. The nice specialty market can be relied on to hold a storm sale, not milk and toilet paper, they will offer 20% off on wine by case, you don't want to run low on Cab-Sav when snowed in for 20 minutes. The Federal government now offers widespread tele-work, then snow is in the forecast they offer unauthorized tele-work meaning that feds can stay home, check their office email and get paid. So it did snow, but it was 36 degrees and snowing, meaning that as soon as it stopped falling it all melted away.
Seriously we do get real snow from time to time. Five years ago when I moved into the condo, we had 24 inches of snow, and two days later another 24 inches on top of that. 48 inches is way too much of any good thing.
