There seems to be some debate as to whether this storm is called Snowpocalypse II or Snowmageddon. Although, since the President used the term Snowmageddon at a DNC meeting on Saturday, I think that settles the issue.
I finally left the warmth of our apartment in the afternoon and enjoyed the complete transformation of our neighborhood into a wintry playground. People were cross-country skiing, snow-shoeing, sledding, snowball fighting, playing football and walking down the middle of the road, paying no attention to street lights. Others were having less fun digging out their cars or clearing high-walled canyons from their steps to the sidewalk. We rounded out the day on H Street where a few places were offering $1 off drinks for every 6 inches of snow.
“Neither snow nor rain nor heat nor gloom of night stays these couriers from the swift completion of their appointed rounds [except for Snowmageddon 2010].”
