Winter Wonderland

"The first fall of snow is not only an event, it is a magical event. You go to bed in one kind of a world and wake up in another quite different, and if this is not enchantment then where is it to be found?" 
 J.B. Priestley


Washington DC saw 18-22 inches of snow the weekend of December 18th. It started snowing on Friday evening and we woke up to pristine snow the next morning. I had not seen this much snow since I was out west 2 years ago--so it was really a treat! It's convenient to live within walking distance of most of your friends. I was able to walk over to Kern's for a homemade breakfast and Katie, Laine, and Charles' for homemade chicken noodle soup!

It snowed all day Saturday and by Sunday the sky was clear and blue. Most of these pictures are from Sunday. I played in the snow both days (of course).

Hello from Washington! I put my ski clothes to good use

Kern and me on the east side of the Capitol while it was still snowing!

West side of the Capitol. I wish I had skis for those steps!

Plenty of people took advantage of Capitol "Hill." We tried to buy sleds but they were sold out everywhere!
