Talk about a white Christmas!
Posted by Jessica Ball
So in case you hadn’t heard, the East Coast got hit with a lot of snow yesterday. I managed to get back to Virginia from Buffalo pretty early on Friday, so luckily I didn’t get stuck in the mess. But I can’t ever remember seeing this much snow in the DC area before! And especially not all at once…it was pretty crazy to be shoveling the driveway and have an inch of snow fall to cover what I’d just shoveled in less than 15 minutes.
Here’s what it looked like at noon on Saturday:
Crazy weather. (And I just found out that they closed all the schools in the county for the rest of the week. My mom is pretty surprised, but at least she gets a long winter vacation!) And since the DC area doesn’t deal with snow well, I’m guessing we won’t have really dug out until after Christmas.
I just hope you guys don't get enough rain next week to melt it all and flood everything.Merry Christmas!
It's been in the 50s and sunny all weekend here in Pensacola…I want snow!
Nice snow angel! I'm usually too busy shoveling to think about an angel.
Your snowy neighborhood looks very much like where I grew up in Arlington.
