Welcome to 2017, friends!  Now that the holiday season is over, local know January is about, well, being cold.  As in “we prefer indoor events” cold (except for snowball fights.  More on those in a minute.)

Locally, we tend to obsess about winter weather, since it’s a well-known fact the DMV area doesn’t handle inclement weather very well.  In a nutshell, winter 2016 forecasts are calling for MORE snow than last year but more evenly spread out.  While as of this writing there’s snow rumors as soon as the third week of January, click here for the full 2017 winter forecast
