Exclamation Caution: Possible Snow

Over the last week I have been looking at the weather for the con, mainly for the temp numbers. However over the last few days Rain, now Snow has appeared on the forecast. I'll still be looking at it, to see if it changes, however as of right now snow showers are on for Saturday and Sunday with highs in the low 30's. Friday looks great, being sunny and high in the 40's.

A plus note...ever time they have said DC will get snow this year, only once have we gotten any.

Regardless stay safe on the way to and from Katsu, and hope to see ya there!

The first year I went was the year that the blizzard dumped tons of snow along the entire route from Michigan, through Indiana and Ohio and PA and MD... I didn't actually mind that much, because compared to some of the road conditions I grew up with in MI, it wasn't that bad - but the drivers from all those other states were freaking out and the weather folks on TV were like "DO NOT DRIVE AT ALL. STAY INSIDE. REALLY FOLKS. DO NOT DRIVE." So there was barely any traffic, and we actually made excellent time.

And every time we stopped along the way and someone asked "Where are you headed in this mess?" and we said DC, they would then ask "Are you crazy?!" and we'd say we're from Michigan, and they'd just go "Ohhhhhh..." in an understanding tone. XD

there is a chance of a storm system hitting the DC area later Wednesday night into Thursday morning, they aren't sure of the direct path yet, it may even stay way south of DC, which I'm so hoping!! (I'm traveling from the mountains in Pa so I'm used to snow but its all the other crazies as you go south you run into that freak out)...

anyhow on www.accuweather.com and www.weather.com they DO NOT mention this system so I'm staying pretty positive right now.....

We found this "POSSIBLE" weather on http://www.facebook.com/easternpaweatherauthority (lets hope they are wrong!!!!)

I rem that year we had 2 ft snow here, and still even tho most of the interstates were single lane it wasnt all that bad driving down, altho attendance was a lil low that year I remember even the pre reg badges didnt arrive on time for thursday pre reg pick up! XD

I'm fairly certain a blizzard did hit Katsu a few years ago, snowing in most of the people there!

For now, weather.gov says there's a chance for snow and rain...so we probably won't get anything.

Yeah, a blizzard did hit. We had to cancel going because our governor decided to close all the roads, even though it really wasn't that bad...though people in the western part of the state got it bad, so I guess he was just trying to keep everyone safe. Idk. Christie is a control freak though.
But some people I know did manage to get there, and then were stuck an extra day.
We weren't going for the whole weekend...I guess if we were and had left sooner we would've been stuck there too.
I hope it snows because of awesome photo ops, but on Friday night or Saturday, so that by the time everyone has to drive home they are safe. And then some snow up here in NJ Sunday night would be great, I'd love to have no school Monday.
