Watching and waiting on the snow

By Washington Post editors

Good morning. There seems to be only one topic this morning: the snowpocalypse.

When is it coming? And how much are we getting? The Capital Weather Gang says the snow's arrival is "imminent," as in starting midday, and that the region is likely to get 16-26 inches.

No wonder snowmaggedon is becoming a buzz word.

For those interested in something other than snow:

--There's the story of an anger management counselor who is alleged to have some anger issues of his own. Jose Avila is charged with allegedly pulling a gun on two men who he believed were blocking his car on an Annandale street last week.

-- A sex-party host has run afoul of some zoning regulations -- and his neighbors. By charging people for the events at his castle-like home in Bethesda, Paul Pickthorne is violating zoning classifications.

-- Tai Shan is out of here and on his way to China, which doesn't seem to be quite as enamored of the panda formerly known as Butterstick as Washingtonians.

-- And some mentally disabled people are leading the fight against the use of the term retarded, saying it's time for a change.

Also of note Friday morning: Casa de Maryland quickly organizes a protest after Immigration and Customs Enforcement detain several people from Honduras, according to the Baltimore Sun. NBC4 has a profile of a retired detective who works on cold cases. (video) The Washington Examiner has the story of a woman who found a loophole in the D.C. tax that allowed her to gain unauthorized access to taxpayer accounts.

Stay with The Post throughout the day and night for storm updates.
