Prepare thyself for White Death 2018

The weather people are calling for some brutal winter weather today. The National Weather Service issued a Winter Storm Warning for all of Maryland:

..WINTER STORM WARNING REMAINS IN EFFECT UNTIL 4 AM EST FRIDAY... * WHAT...Heavy mixed precipitation expected. Total sleet and snow accumulation of 2 to 5 inches, and ice glaze accumulations of one-quarter inch expected. Elevations above 2000 feet could see ice accumulations exceeding one-half inch. * WHERE...Portions of north central and western Maryland, northwest Virginia and eastern and panhandle West Virginia. * WHEN...Wintry precipitation will continue through 4 AM EST Friday. * ADDITIONAL DETAILS...Power outages and tree damage are likely due to the ice. Travel could be nearly extremely difficult. The hazardous conditions could impact the Thursday morning and evening commute.

Although I’m a fan of winter weather, I’m not a fan of sleet. It’s the centrist of winter weather. Sleet is not rain and it’s not snow. It’s an unholy, wishy-washy combination of the two.
