Preparing for more snow today

By Mark Berman
Mark Berman

The Capital Weather Gang is predicting snow showers (mixed with rain in the District and to the southeast) around midday today, with "flurries and/or moderate showers" potentially hanging around until the afternoon. They are calling for light accumulation with a coating to half an inch possible.

What does this mean for you? It means that there's a chance roads could be slick or icy for tonight's commute home as temperatures drop, and it means you need to be wary whether you're walking somewhere or driving.

Here are some resources to aid you with your trek:
-- Stay with the Dr. Gridlock blog before heading home to find out how things are looking.
-- If you'll be on the go, check out the Post's mobile site for your information.
-- Visit the Capital Weather Gang for all of your meteorological needs.
-- PostLocal will have the latest on closings and power outages.
-- Dr. Gridlock's snow guide
-- Snow removal information
-- Flying? Better check with your airlines before heading out.
-- If you still haven't retrieved your abandoned vehicle, here's how you can find it.
Commuter trains:
- Metro
- VRE
- MARC
- Amtrak

Maybe the next time the snow plows are needed they could manage not to leave a big mound of snow at the end of my driveway!-and if they do perhaps they could be so kind as to remove the mound from the front of my driveway. It sure would be nice to only have to shovel the snow that fell on my driveway and side walk!

Absolutely. It shouldn't matter that avoiding driveways means snowplows can only plow 50% of the streets they could otherwise, 10bestfan must have a clear route, even if others don't.
