One of the advantages to living in the mid-Atlantic states is that really horrible weather is fairly rare, particularly in December. "Fairly rare," however, does not mean "nonexistent." The odds caught up to us this past weekend, when anywhere between 17 and 22 inches of snow fell over a 24-hour period. The temperatures will stay in the 30s during the day and the 20s at night, so this monster of a snowfall will be with us for quite some time.
