Confessions of a Washington snowstorm virgin

Smowmageddon it was not, but the roughly half an inch of snow and sleet that fell in Washington, D.C., late last night and early this morning caused slippery roads, delayed schools and prompted fears of another hellacious commute.

Snowstorms have become an unfortunate part of life this winter, but I confess I was somewhat excited to experience my first Washington snowstorm. The .4" that fell at Reagan National Airport hardly qualifies as a serious snowfall to anyone born north of the Mason-Dixon Line. Watching Washingtonians stress over the mere prospect of a moderate snowfall, however, is simply priceless.
