They said on the news that this can't technically be called a blizzard, but it's close enough to count in my book!
Our street in the early morning snow.
We headed down to the Mall to see the fresh snowfall this morning.
Only about four inches at that time.
Can you see the Capitol?
A few hours later, there was at least a foot of snow!
A little too up-close of a snow encounter for Andrew.
Somewhat better. Plastic bags on his feet, in honor of my snowy Alabama childhood.
Snow makes everything prettier.
"These are a few of my favorite things...Snowflakes that stay on my nose and eyelashes."
And it's still coming down like crazy! We're supposed to get another 12 inches or so!
Jacob just completed a 2-mile, on foot, through the snow, uphill both ways trip to retrieve Andrew's birthday cake for tomorrow's celebration. A man who will carry a half sheet cake through blizzard-like conditions and not even mess up the icing is a keeper. And now he's gone back to get the egg nog. We'll see if anyone braves the blizzard to join us tomorrow...if not, we'll be feasting on cake and nog for weeks!
