I hope so, I'm out of chocolate.

In NW DC...The clouds are the darkest I've seen so far this spring.

I'm starting to think those clouds are all talk and no walk...

It's a frog-drowner in West Springfield.

Raining pretty heavily in Lake Ridge, but no thunder or lightning as yet.

So much for sending out for a pizza.

The rain just isn't quitting - peep the 10-day. It looks ugly.

Its a botched-forecast soaker. Been raining steadily for two hours here in Vienna with two heavy downpours in the mix.

Thanks a lot, Capital Weather, or should I say Cr... Well, I won't.

Snow Monster is now the Rain Monster after getting complete drenched, thanks to the earlier forecast of "patchy" and "light" rain, if any, amounting to less than 0.1 inches. Yeah right. My clothes are ruined and my lobster drowned in the ordeal.

To top it all off, my knitting circle was canceled.

The TV mets were joking about this blog tonight. Check out Sue Palka unleash on Capital Weather!: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Yu_moia-oVI

Wow. I'm angry about the blown forecast, too, but Palka's fury is totally unwarranted.
