Jukebox Saturday Night for January 12th, 2019: Philadelphia Freedom '75 and Washington, D.C. Snow Day '19


"Philadelphia Freedom" by Elton John (or rather, the Elton John Band) released as a single (1975)

Yes, I've featured it before, but it was stuck in my head yesterday and I just love the song, so I'm featuring it again. It is also the only song I'm featuring in this edition, along with a quick weather update.

I'm in a hurry to meet Gary at Dupont Circle and then get to Foggy Bottom Metro to meet my coworker friend, Matt. The three of us are going to our company's after-the-fact holiday party out in Tysons. However, owing to the weather (see below), we are taking the Metro rather than driving.

About the weather, the entire "DMV" region is under a winter storm warning including all of the Metro D.C. and Metro Baltimore areas.

The model solutions all day yesterday and this morning trended snowier and now the NWS forecast calls for 8 to 12 inches of snow -- which, if it verifies, would make this point a major snowstorm.

OK, I need to get out of this apartment. I'll try to post an entry tomorrow (Sunday).
