The snowstorm that started on Friday night finally left us But, she left us with spectacular view of the town Everyone is out enjoying themselves – particularly kids. I wonder their schools will be closed tomorrow.
Indeed, it was the largest recorded snowstorms in D.C. since mid 90’s when everything was shut down for 4 days. I think we got a little bit over two feet this time. Accumulating snow ended around 2 a.m this morning. Looking through my apartment window, it looks like we’re now in the icebox with lows mainly in the lower 20s. Still a little bit windy which is causing blowing and drifting of snow.
I do realize two feet of snow is nothing compare to Bufallo, NY or other part of our nation, or compare to other countries in Northern Europe or Russia that closes down the entire city for days. What is the point of having tons of snow and your town gets completely dysfunctional? Unlike other cities, DC continued to stay partially functional which means you can still come out to go to your local walking distance coffee shops, bars, bookstores, etc.
And, that’s exactly what I did Saturday morning. I packed up my laptops, my Android, phone, and my digital camera headed towards my favorite coffee shop in Dupont Circle. Thanks to our Mayor, Adrian Fenty making sure the major streets in DC stayed clean and open.
Here are a couple random pictures I took around Georgetown and Dupont Circle:
