Description of Chesapeake's seasonal sailing conditions

I am seriously considering the Chesapeake area, specifically the Norfolk area, as a permanent liveaboard location in the near future. Can anyone describe for me what type of sailing conditions I can expect in each season? Is there a problem with winter ice in the local marinas? What is hurricane season like? Extended periods of high winds or calms? Water depths or numerious obstructions/traffic? That sort of thing. I'm planning on numerous weekend anchorages and gaining salt water experience since almost all of my recent sailing has been fresh water. I'm also curious as to the availability of decent anchorages. Thanks and good sailing!
