wintry mix!

The Northern VA area is calling for a possible wintry mix tomorrow.  With any luck, it will be absolutely nothing like what happened last year about this time, namely the formation of a sheet of ice over the DC area which left people stranded for up to 8(!) hours on stretches of 395 and other parts of the beltway.  It really caught VDOT with their pants down and they caught a great deal of flack for not having pre-salted the roads.  Of course now they put salt down if ice is mentioned at all by the weather folks, so that's good.  No workout today save for a stretching routine; so pretty much a rest day.  Tomorrow I'll head out for a run during lunch at work.
