I woke up this morning to find a light dusting of snow on the ground. This was not totally unexpected, but the temperature remained right at freezing with sleet and freezing rain throughout the rest of the day. I had hoped to go to the Apple Store this afternoon, but the sound of sleet and freezing rain made me forget all about that idea.
January is a winter month, after all. Because the winter has been so mild so far, this weather comes as a shock to the system and I don’t want to risk an accident on the roads this afternoon. People in the DC area have a hard enough time driving when conditions are perfect, but when things are bad, the number of accidents skyrockets.
Staying home is not the worst thing to do on a cold afternoon, but I will hope that the weather will be better tomorrow.
