Snowmageddon

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].”

  1. Great photos! Wishing I could be there for about 4 hours, then return back to warm but still cool Kolkata!

    Thanks! I can’t believe round two of this storm brought another 6 inches. The red door is at 9th and D St. NE. I guess it used to be an elementary school but I looked it up online, and now it’s some sort of teachers college annex building.
