Winter

DC Thundersnow 2011

Last week we had some shitty weather here in capital city.  Yeah, I said it.  It gets compounded here in DC because traffic is so bad to begin with; many drivers are from other states and countries and the three plows we have take their time getting around.

I had some fun on facebook with my trip updates – here’s the first one trying to get out of Georgetown at 4:30.

Needless to say, it was an exercise in patience.  Final tally was about 3 hours, 6.4 miles.  Luckily I had my camera to keep me occupied on the streets and highways turned parking lots.

DC Snows

What’s going on here?  All summer I was told how mild DC winters are and how snow is a rarity.  Then came the 20 inches in December.  Now there’s talk of another 20+ inches being dumped on the District this weekend.  In fact, there’s a very good chance that this pending storm will make this the most flurry-filled winter in DC’s history.  This is some nonsense.
