Damn, another ride I would like to make. I sure would like to join but it's just a little to far from the northwest. Have fun.

I'm interested, but can't commit at this point (the next day is my birthday, and I don't know if my wife has anything planned). I'm in Silver Spring, MD, and it'll probably take me about 45 minutes to get to Springfield from my house.

I'm optomistic. Look at how these idiots were wrong AGAIN -there ain't no 5-8 inche out there ! I have maybe 1.5 in my grass and NO sticking to the streets. Definitely gonna freeze tonight though. Will make a call at noon on Friday. DREBBIN

UPDATE: FRI 25 FEB 1400

The streets & roads by Dulles look safe right now.

Overnight its going to freeze again.

For Saturday, Richmond is 53 degrees.

Right now I'm inclined to try for Sat but will wait to roll until 0900.

I will try be at the Shell at 123 & 95 at about 1015.

If the weather gets worse tonight I will post info here.

If we lv there by 1045 we will be at the Smokey Pig circa 1140.

THNX, DREBBIN
