Breaking: Winter-Like Weather Disrupts Reston Winter

Official Restonian Weather Center 9000(tm)

At considerable personal expense, we installed a state-of-the-art weather station at Restonian World Headquarters to provide the kind of hyperlocal, data-driven weather information you just won't get from the "lamestream" media. Pay no attention to the peeling (yet DRB-friendly) trim and behold the freezing doom that awaits us today and despair, the end.


  1. FCPS school closings today. Ridiculous. It's called WINTER.

    1. B-but little Zachary and Madison might have had to wait out at the school bus in the cold, like some common Midwesterner! Simply unacceptable in the second most affluent county in the country.

    2. And now there's a two-hour delay on Wednesday... when temperatures are supposed to be more or less normal for January. WTF?

  2. Peasant From Less Sought After South RestonJanuary 7, 2014 at 11:19 AM

    Similar cutting edge high-tech instrumentation in the breezeway of Peasant World Headquarters registered 0 degrees at 8:00 AM today, although the breezeway is always a few degrees colder than elsewhere. But a check of the Weatherbug reading at Hunters Woods elementary school at 6:00 AM did show the temperature there to be 0.9 degrees.

    And remember, Less Sought After South Reston is Dixie compared to those icy environs north of the Toll Road.

  3. Yeah, it was so cold this morning that I had to "Dutch Oven" the Convictress in order to get her out of bed.

  4. This morning one of my coworkers grabbed the metal handle of the door to our building with a bare hand and the door would not let go.

    Yeah, it is that bad.
