1 Meter of Snow +

WHY UPDATE WHAT'S going on in our life when I can show photos of the record snowfall in our hometown of Washington, DC? We tried to get a feel for snow by heading up to a local ski station yesterday afternoon for an little skiing, but even on the top of the mountain, I don't think there was as much snow as there is now on the ground in the DC area. After nearly a meter of snow last weekend, they are getting hit again today with possibly another 30-40cm. Crazy. Here are a couple photos: the first is Kerri's parent's house (thanks for sending the photo), and the second is a snowboarder in front of the Lincoln Memorial in downtown DC, and the third is just a beautiful shot of the US Capitol building.

I cannot EVEN imagine that much snow... I, as a native Californian, am having a difficult time just now with all the snow we've had so far this year! And, this will be 3 1/2 years in France for me...

Enjoy your skiing excursions!!!

We only got a slight dusting here. I love the photo of the snowboarder.

It's very pretty! But as the seat of our national government, DC needs to get some snow plows and its citizens some snow shovels so they can cope when this happens. I live in New England, and even for us this is a lot of snow, but ever since the blizzard of 78 we have cleared up big storms as they are happening.

I heard on NPR the other day that this is costing the gov't (hence us) $500m in lost productivity. $500m buys a lot of snow plows.
