Given how rarely we get major snow here in DC, I really didn’t think anything would top the storm right before Christmas, but I was so, so wrong. We’re approaching two feet on the ground at my apartment, and it is not supposed to stop snowing until 10 pm — nine more hours.
But at least I am not alone this time. My sister-in-law came down last night for the Caps game (more on that later) and got snowed in. We’re going to head outside in a bit to make an attempt at digging out her car, but even if we succeed, it’s not likely she’ll be going anywhere. My street hasn’t seen a plow yet, and the tv news folks are saying that, around the entire area, neighborhood roads are entirely impassible. This is a massive storm, even to two semi-jaded upstate New York/Chicago girls, and one this area is completely unequipped to handle. Thank heaven I had the foresight to buy ingredients for brownies.
Here are a few photos. I’ll update as more snow comes down.
Updatedthe slideshow at 6:20 pm with photos from the big dig-out. Or the first one, anyway.
