Snowmageddon 2010

On Friday, they promised us that we were getting the storm of the decade. And sure enough, we got a doozey.

On Friday, the snow started and didn't stop till Saturday night. At around 1am on Saturday, we lost power. We dialed the automated information line, and they promised us the electricity would be on by 8am. Sure enough, at 8:45am, the lights came back on.

Unlike our last big storm, this snow was much heavier and a real pain to shovel. The Federal Government and Schools are closed on Monday, and my guess is, it'll be another few days before things get back to normal. Ahh, got to love DC in the winter.

And here's a few photos...


  1. I hope David doesn't have to go into the office tomorrow. I've got to drive Lauren to Union Station in the morning and then decide if I'm making the drive to my office in Greenbelt.

  2. Last I heard, he's planning on taking the metro in. What can I say, science doesn't get a day off!

  3. Crap, I would have jumped a ride to Union Station. Driving was terrible. I only made it 1/3 of the way before turning around. It was surprising how bad the roads were still covered.
