As I wrote a few weeks ago, this winter could be a snowy one. This weekend it was officially confirmed. I did not check the news lately if this ended up to be an officially record-breaking snowfall for DC area, but they did forecast this could be the case. At any rate we do have a lot of snow.
It started late Friday night and continued pretty much through all day Saturday. Transit services in DC and vicinity were closed by 3 PM. Metro continued only undeground operations. Businesses and stores also closed in the afternoon. I know that upnorth states have this kind of weather quite routinely in winter, but for us it is really a big deal. I took a walk around the neighborhood last night. That was a really very impressive sight. Cars were covered with about 17 inches of snow, so all of them, even the smallest ones, looked like oversized SUVs. I took a few pictures with my phone camera today, just for the cick of it. Take a look.
