Friends, despite the blue sky this a.m., snow is scheduled for Bethesda/ the Washington, DC metro area tonight and tomorrow…..stay tuned for more.
Spring looks like it has been put on hold for a few days — the weekend looks like it will be chilly. However, there is an upside — one last opportunity to make a hearty soup before the warm weather is upon us.
Check out some of our past receipes if the mood for soup grabs you and if you need a pot for your masterpiece check out the options available in Bethesda including in the Lane:
A light snow has started to come down in Bethesda. The good news is very little is sticking so far, temperatures are forecast to be above 32 degrees until 5pm and the great folks at Washington Post WeatherGang expect this little system to clear through quite quickly.
The not so good news is that it looks like temperatures may dip with the wind chill to below freezing for rush hour. Wrap up warm, keep an eye out for ICE! and take it slow if you are commuting tonight!
Just to follow-up on Raj’s post from this morning, I grabbed a few pics of the snow while out and about around downtown Bethesda today. It’s incredible to think that with all the chaos caused yesterday, the roads would be open again today with very little disruption caused to work schedules. Though the roads were relatively quiet, it was a far cry from less than 24 hours ago when friends took upto six hours to travel a few miles home from work. And just when people thought there might be a nice snow day to compensate!
We have a few more pictures from some readers. These ones are from a garden where clumps of snow look like giant white cotton balls. We love it. Please keep sharing.

We are hearing of more than a few traffic messes from last night. One reader and her husband took 6 hours to get from Dulles Airport home to Bethesda. Another reader gave up the commute and left his car on Jones Bridge Rd to be rescued this morning. And then we got this picture…
Apparently the car had NY plates. A long way to go to end up like this! Thankfully it looks like no one was hurt!
Well here in Bethesda we woke to the sound of dripping snow and one look outside told us that the chances of a snow day had already melted away. There was enough snow left to mean some work digging out the car, the sidewalks and the driveway but much of the snow on the trees had fallen and melted.
