Snowmageddon 2010

Have you ever spent long grueling hours digging out the flaky and at times hard snow around your car? So much....you wished you had no winter coat on from the intense workout...So much...Advil seemed like it’s going to be your best friend for that semi-good night achy sleep. Well, i experienced that today. Why i’m blogging about it...well because it’s ‘HISTORIC’.

This weekend, Washington, DC and the surrounding regions got the biggest, badest snowstorm since 1920. Shutting down airports leaving thousands stranded, over 200,000 without power, and a good hundred people with a snowball fight of the century! (held in Dupont Circle). Snow accumulated as much as a little over 3 feet in some areas.



At my job, we got out at 12 PM on friday and are off on monday. That is rare. We hardly ever close. Because most of the accumulation was to set in around friday night, saturday all day; like most people, i decided to venture out in the snowy driveways to attempt to clean the snow off and around my car. Uh...yeah. It was one of those moments, you walk out....and your bloods pumping and your just ready to rock....and then you look at what’s actually in front of you and you freeze. So i froze for a few moments, but eventually trying to shovel the snow off the car. I was thrilled when my kind neighbors (whom i had never met before), not only let me borrow their shovel but actually helped me until it was all good to go! As much as it was painful to clean, it was delightful to watch all the kids playing in the snow, the lovebirds throwing snowballs at each other, the parents yelling at the kids to not get any snow in their boots or hit a lamp post or something dug in the snow.....Family time. It was great to watch that while i plowed my way to my car’s front hood.


O yes and everyone was snowed in..
