We have a winter weather advisory here. Should be a fun commute day.
Never mind, the advisory is for tomorrow. Today, it's just sub freezing temps.
Careful, your overwhelming ignorance is showing.

Should be today too, roads are going to be slick.
We got about an inch last night, but whatever stuck should be gone tomorrow when we're in the mid-40s.
