Snow Day

Thanks everyone for sending us your snow shots. Had fun sharing some today. Be safe, be warm. More to likely come Thursday!

Snow Day!

Now that the kids are getting older.. it actually is getting more fun. We slept in and awoke to a winter wonderland outside.

So I have to be honest. It was a snowman making attempt. But we settled on calling it our snowbird.  IMG_6811

Track Snow Plows Where You Live

Waking up wondering when your street is gonna be plowed.
VIRGINIA
Log on to vdotplows.org for Virginia’s digital Snow Plow Tracker. From what I can tell this morning most of the trucks are in Northern Virginia and the Fredericksburg area. Plug in your address.. and even get the option to take a look at LIVE traffic cameras around where you live.
MARYLAND
In Maryland, on the Prince Georges County website.. you can zoom in to where you live, and using a legend you can tell what’s been salted or plowed. Montgomery County’s website has a snowmap… Just plug in your address to request service.
DC
In the District, DC dot gov has a “Snow Response Reporting System” updated every half hour.
But note, you have to ZOOM IN on where you live and then click START and the the trucks on the map will pop up.

2014 has already been magical!

We’re only a couple days into the new year and it’s been wonderful. Spent with family and snow!

#FastSnow moving through

Within the first hour of the snow falling everyone I heard from on social media commented on how fast the stuff was accumulating outside their door. #Snowday instantly started trending on twitter… following #closures and #telework. I think the hashtag of the morning should be #FastSnow because that’s what everyone seems to be talking about. Remember to tweet us your photos @nbcwashington or email them to isee@nbcwashington.com Thanks!

DC, MD & VAQ Snow Plow Trackers

Digging out of the snow goes digital across our region.
VDOT introduces the Snow Plow Tracker online you can see in real time when the trucks are clearing around your neighborhood in Northern Virginia.Plug in your address.. and even get the option to take a look at LIVE traffic cams nearby too.
Maryland doesn’t have a statewide plow tracker– but Howard County does.Their tracker has a legend that allows you to see whats been salted, plowed or both.
In DC there’s a pretty accurate “Snow Response Reporting System“. It isn’t a live GPS tracker, but it does update frequently. I plugged in our station’s address and got an immediate animation with where the plows were overnight. The live camera feature of local roads and their conditions pop up too. Just a few tools you can use at home now as we get through another storm. We’re posting all this at nbcwashington.com. Search PLOW.

Finally.. the white stuff

We finally got something we could play with. Adora had a blast until her hands froze. I couldn’t find her gloves and she insisted in playing in the snow. We enjoyed it..then headed to breakfast for a nice warm meal and chocolate milk. Comfort food was made for days like this!
