This is a joke, right?

When all else fails, resort to talking about the weather, right?

SPECIAL WEATHER STATEMENT
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE BALTIMORE MD/WASHINGTON DC
1041 AM EST TUE JAN 15 2008
..SNOW SHOWERS MOVING THROUGH THE REGION…

A BAND OF MODERATE TO BRIEFLY HEAVY SNOW SHOWERS EXTENDING FROM NEAR MARTINSBURG WEST VIRGINIA SOUTH TO GREENE COUNTY VIRGINIA WILL CONTINUE TO MOVE TO THE EAST AROUND 25 MPH. THIS LINE IS EXPECTED TO REACH THE ROUTE 28 CORRIDOR IN NORTHERN VIRGINIA BY 1130 AM. ADDITIONAL SNOW SHOWERS MAY DEVELOP FURTHER EAST TOWARD THE WASHINGTON AND BALTIMORE METRO AREAS IN THE NEXT COUPLE OF HOURS.

THESE SNOW SHOWERS ARE CAPABLE OF COVERING THE ROADS. HEAVIER SQUALLS MAY PRODUCE UP TO A QUICK HALF INCH OF ACCUMULATION IN A VERY SHORT PERIOD OF TIME. VISIBILITIES MAY BE ALSO BE REDUCED BRIEFLY TO A QUARTER MILE.

I checked Capital Weather and the top post says possible snow Thursday, not today, Tuesday! So I was planning on leaving about 12:15 – which looks right about the time we may get hit?
