Snow and More…Snow

We had a record snowfall here in the Washington, DC area this weekend. Two feet of snow fell from Friday to Saturday. Just look at my vending machine! They are saying that we haven’t had this much since 1922.

The plow didn’t make it to our neighborhood until last night so we have been hibernating since Friday. Other than the 12 hours when our power went out, we had tons of fun. Eating was our chief activity. I’m so glad we live in an age where we know the snow is coming beforehand: plenty of time to stockpile good food!

Even when the power was out, we made the best of it—trying to imagine that we were camping (without heat, electricity or running water, that’s practically what it was!). We used snow to boil water on the gas grill for coffee and huddled around in blankets laughing and talking. It was a fun memory (especially now that the heat is back on!).

Crazy thing is, they are calling for more snow tomorrow. I’m just grateful that our street is plowed so that I can get to the grocery store and restock before it hits.

We’ll be back tomorrow with more talk on the new clubs.
