While snow is in today’s forecast it shouldn’t be a big deal.
Good morning, RVA! It’s just about 30 °F, and snow is in the forecast–but don’t flip your lid. We’re looking at a cold, wet day with temperatures mostly above freezing and limited-to-no accumulation of snow. Just enough weather to make your commute annoying.
Currently, every area school and college is open (and will likely remain so).
City Council met last night and continued an ordinance that would have reduced the number of times they meet to just once a month. They’ll pick it up at the April 14th meeting, and it will, theoretically, take effect in June.
#ShakaWatch, an annual rite of spring in RVA, began in earnest last night as a Twitter swelled with rumors of Coach Smart leaving VCU for the head coaching job at Marquette. No sources of note have confirmed this, and Athletic Director Ed McLaughlin said yesterday that no one has approached him to officially talk to Coach Smart.

This is what happens when you listen to Nirvana with your two-year-old.
The computer, in shuffle mode, started playing a Nirvana song called “Drain You.” I had not heard it in years. Or, at least, I hadn’t listened to it closely in years.
I turned it up. I started bouncing, and soon I was jumping up and down again. Alexander joined in. I wondered if the song was too dark and angry to play for a two-year-old. I stopped jumping and listened. Alexander stopped jumping and listened with me.
