Morning after the big snow
Compared with last year’s six foot drifts, this was a baby snow. Yet, there are many closings and late starts this morning. The President made it home last night just before the heaviest dump clogged the freeway. He couldn’t chopper in last night.
See the pictures from this morning. One of the best pictures was in the Washington Post this morning showing a guy running coatless with an ice cream cone in the snowstorm. He must work for Social Security.
The snow was accompanied by lightning and thunder.
Back to work everybody, until tomorrow’s follow-up storm.
