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.
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.
