    'Snowmageddon' blankets Mid-Atlantic in heavy snow

    WASHINGTON Mid-Atlantic residents were buried Saturday from a likely record-setting blizzard the president jokingly dubbed "Snowmageddon," and those brave enough tried to clear a path through the wet, heavy mounds of thigh-high snow.


    The snow was falling too quickly in the nation's capital for crews to keep up, and officials begged residents to stay home and out of the way so that roads might be cleared in time for everyone to return to work Monday. The usually traffic-snarled roads were mostly barren, and Washington's familiar sites and monuments were covered with nearly 2 feet of snow.
    They are calling it the worst snow storm in about 100 years. At this time, hundreds of thousands are without any power or heat, with biting temperatures and wind chills. Some deaths can be expected from this. Let's pray that the death toll turns out to be low.

    Fortunately, the power is still on here in Cleveland Park (Northwest DC). We have well over 2 feet of snow though, and it's still coming down. We could have as much as 30 inches by the time this is over.

    Come on. We are acting like a couple of idiots here, arguing about what to call it. In the spirit of compromise (And also because I am too damn lazy to defend my word for the snowstorm), let's just call this.....

    The ohmyfingGodapocageddonofacraploadofsnow. That will cover a few other bases, just in case others decide to argue their own word for it.

    Good luck to you getting through this. Hope you did not have plans this weekend.

    I am sure he has many plans, and I am also sure that a snow shovel is in all of them. Reminds me of why I do not feel bad about leaving Michigan. LOL.

    We got kind of a mix down here in southeastern Va. It'd snow yesterday turning to rain then snow again today. Didn't really stick to the roads.

    You cold hearted bastard....

    Though I would point out we have had very little snow here in Michigan this year.
