It’s March. There shouldn’t be snow on the ground in this part of Maryland at this time of year. And as I write this we’re supposed to get another 7 to 10 inches. Yesterday, school was let out early, again, due to sleet that quickly froze to ice on the roadways. When this sort of thing happens in D.C. most people have the good sense to panic, hop in their cars, and tailgate each other at 70 mph, as if they couldn’t wait to crash. The survivors descend with sharp elbows on the grocery stores for the supplies needed to face the apocalypse: milk, bread, and toilet paper.
