Good Morning, RVA: Damn cold

I thought we were done with wearing socks.

Good morning, RVA! It’s 33 °F–a full thirty degrees colder than it was 24 hours ago. Temperatures will continue to drop until 9:00 AM when they bottom out around 30 °F. As you can imagine, we’re under a freeze warning, so I hope you brought in your plants.

Things will start to heat back up tomorrow, but it’ll take until Saturday for sockless temperatures to return.

Many streets will close to traffic and parking Friday, May 2nd through Sunday, May 4th. If you live in the Bottom, you may want to stay with a friend on Sunday…

Coverage from the dust up at Monday’s City Council meeting continues to read like something out of The Onion.

If you’re a beautiful man, Ledbury would like you to come out to their model casting call today or tomorrow.

A statistical analysis of the work of Bob Ross

There’s a 93 percent chance that Ross paints a second tree given that he has painted a first.
