Snow, Ice, Rain, Snow

I woke up early this morning to the sounds of ice pellets hitting my window. That always gets my attention. Overnight we got a little snow, followed by some ice pellets, then it warmed up a bit and it changed to rain. As I write this we are back to ice. Montgomery County Schools are closed today but that seems to be more fear about what could happen later today than current conditions.

The forecast is for rain/ice this morning then this afternoon getting some snow. It looks like Bethesda, MD will get 4-6 inches with more to the north. It could get messy this evening with the rain/slush turning to ice. For those of you new to the area that means everyone should go to the food store over lunch and buy all the milk, toilet paper, bread, and chips. Then, leave work 15 minutes early to "beat the rush" and get stuck in traffic until around 8pm.
Montgomery County plow trucks are out, there isn't a whole lot for them to do at the moment but I did see one waiting on a side street and the one pictured was pushing the slush off the road on Cordell Avenue.
