We're having a good old fashioned DC-style freak out on account of some wintry weather today. And while snow hysteria tends to make many DC residents grouchy, I've always enjoyed it. Maybe it's different if you're transplanted from a region that actually gets enough snow to justify having fancy equipment to clear it, but as one of the rare breed of Beltway-born, snow and collective hysteria go hand-in-hand for me. It's as much a part of winter as marshmallows in my cocoa.
So nothing academic today! Just best wishes to all my friends and family who are trying to beat the rush hour madness to shelter in place tonight.
