Friday Postcard: Arlington, Virginia (Snowpocalypse Edition)

Depending on if you follow US news, you may or may not know that my hometown of DC is being ravaged by a never ending snow storm of doom. The snow started falling last Friday afternoon, and as I look out my window today (Wednesday) it still looks like someone gave a snowglobe a hard shake. We’ve had something like 30+ inches of snow over the past week (this in an area that gets maybe 10 inches a year on average)!

This was all very amusing for the first day or so, but overtime snow fatigue has begun to set in. It’s impossible to go anywhere, I haven’t been to work in over a week and the thought of doing anymore shoveling makes me want to die. I’ve been passing the time blogging and planning for next winter when I will hopefully be in much warmer climes.

Here’s hoping the sun comes out soon!

    Yeah it was really pretty at first- won’t be in a couple weeks when it’s all melting and dirty.

    In complete contrast, I am super excited at seeing snow (haven’t seen it before just lying on sidewalks, benches and what not)! 😀 Though sun seems to be out on my first day here in Richmond. That is nice too! How’s the weather in DC now?

    Snowpocalypse! We live in Columbia MD and got a healthy 40″+ of snow… I’ve never shoveled more snow in my entire life. 🙂

    I love snow and I was pretty sad to know that my hometown (St. Louis, MO) was getting way more snow than usual, including a white Christmas. However, now that they are still suffering from school/work closings and ice storms, I’m happy to be here in Buenos Aires.
