The Aftermath

Good morning from the arctic! Class and work are cancelled again today.

…Which is a good thing, considering these are just waiting for me to open my front door:


Gah!! Icicles of death. I still have a cut on my hand from one of them attacking me on Monday morning. They’re back with a vengeance!!

The snow finally stopped last night around 7. Apparently D.C. has officially set a new record: 54.9 inches of snow so far this season!!! That beats out the old 54.4” record from 1898-99.


I feel kind of like I live on a mountain or something. Too bad I don’t own skis!


Now it’s time to start digging ourselves out of this mess… at least the sun is shining today :)


I’m going to head outside to do a little exploring around the neighborhood… fresh air would be a good thing!

Check back in a bit… I’m working on a super fun post including a GIVEAWAY for later today! :)

    54.9 inches of snow is just RIDICULOUS!!! I cannot imagine.

    Wow!! That’s a ton of snow!!

  6. 6

    Holy moly! That is a ton of snow! I live in Alberta and usually that happens to us a least once before winter is over….still waiting.

  7. 7

    The thought of 54.9 inches of snow makes me want to cry. And so do those icicles! Stay safe out there!!

    oh my gosh that is A LOT of snow! Crikey, if I’d just started reading your blog and you wrote you lived in the Artic, I really wouldn’t be surprised….

  12. 12

    Crazy crazy cazy! I saw some of the biggest icicles of my life today. This snow is a mess. Hope you are staying warm!

  13. 13

    Wow! I have never seen anything like that! Is that a normal winter for you? It must be really hard to make yourself go outside sometimes.

    Absolutely not!!! D.C. normally gets like ONE day where there’s a light dusting and everyone freaks out, and that’s it. This is absurd. -Anne

    Ah right. I thought it’d make it pretty hard to get around!
