I had to try not to laugh, because I was thinking "What else could you possibly need?"
    Another thing that cracks me up, but also gets me a bit peeved, is they will close the government offices due to snow. The workers supposedly can't make it in due to the weather, yet for some reason the mall parking lot is jammed packed.
    How can I get my street on VDOTís list of
    roads to be plowed?
    There is no such list. If a road is a state road,
    VDOT is responsible for clearing it. VDOT
    roads have black and white route number
    signs attached to either a stop sign or a
    street name sign. Before it snows, check
    to see whether or not your street is
    state-maintained.


    Why does it take so long to clear
    subdivision streets during major storms?
    Heavy or deep snows slow plow truck
    progress so it may take longer for plows to
    reach your street. Narrow streets, hills and
    curves, parked cars and smaller cul-de-sacs
    also slow plowing operations.

    What should my subdivision street look
    like after a major snowstorm?
    During snowstorms of 8 inches or more, your
    street will have only one travel lane plowed
    initially and it may be snow-packed, making
    all-weather tires a must. Crews will continue
    plowing until your roadway is clear.

    A lot of people in northern Virginia don't know how to safely drive in snow. That would be a good reason to not require people to come to work. But those same people don't have sense enough to stay home!

    Another thing, JollyElfDC, it's always difficult to find yourself in a new culture where things are different from what you've been used to. If you're from Pittsburgh and you go to Montgomery, AL, or another town in the south, there's sure to be someone who will say, "You're not from around here, are you? I had a friend once who talked like you. Let me think, where was she from?" Or if you go to Arkansas or Oklahoma from New York, someone will call you a foreigner. That one really gets me, but it's just their culture. When we moved here from Virginia, it took my husband about ten years to stop telling me that the person ahead of him didn't use a signal light.
