So it's supposed to snow in the D.C. area tomorrow, in case you haven't heard.
And that's no good at all for, say, a blogger who gets around in a 1999 Honda Civic and needs to get to tomorrow's 7 p.m. tip between Maryland and North Carolina in College Park.
But for a Maryland basketball coach? That's another matter, especially since he convinced his kids when they moved from Texas two years ago there would be some wintry weather in their future.
"Guys, when we move to Maryland, it's going to snow," coach Mark Turgeon said. "All I hear is 'Oh, we're going to get seven inches.' The Duke game, we were supposed to have 12 inches and it didn't snow at all. You know how hard it is to look my kids in the eye? They think I'm full of it. I hope it does snow. I hope it does snow for them so then their dad looks better for them. We'll see."
The secondary concern? That would be packing Comcast Center which, if the 2010 snow game is any indication, won't be a huge issue.
"Maryland fans are passionate," Turgeon said. "It's North Carolina. If it does snow, I imagine we'll figure a way out to fill the building."
