This must be "the big one." We have at least 4 inches fallen since midnight, and it's still coming down. Forecast is heavy snow throughout the day and afternoon...8 - 12 inches; and tonight 1 - 3 inches more accumulation. A rarity: the community college is closed--is next week's official Spring Break in jeopardy? And I think Jonathan was actually looking forward to taking his mid-terms and giving his speech this week! Sarah, the sledding queen, will be ecstatic when she wakes up!
UPDATE: Sarah just measured, and we have 8 inches now at 11 a.m. and still coming down strong. She's sledding, Pepper is frolicking, Jonathan is studying, Hannah is reading, I'm cleaning, Tom's at work (hopefully with just snow it won't mean any power outages for overtime), and Micah is someplace in Georgia (where it's probably only raining). His flight is due in DC from Atlanta around 8:30 tonight if nothing gets cancelled.
UPDATE: Independence Air's flight (after a more than 3-hour delay) was taxiing in when Micah called at 11 p.m. to let us know he was in DC. Sarah stayed up to answer the phone when he called at 2:30 a.m. this morning (Tues) to tell us he was at his apartment..."the roads were wet but fine, even better than last Thursday"...when he drove to DC he said.
("OK, now let's get back to normal living and stop all this
worrying being concerned, and get some sleep!")
