Again!

(Two posts today.  Please scroll down)

Snowing here in the D.C. area — once again, more than the weathermen forecast!

This is the Year of the Snow Dragon (with thanks to FreeThinke for emailing me the image below):

  1. When you're "snowed under," it sure helps to keep your sense of humor intact, doesn't it? ;-)

    1. FT,
      It's almost the end of February, so the worst of the worst weather should be behind us now. I hope!

  2. Snowing here too, AOW.
    Luckily just a flurry. The flurries have been off and on for about a week.
    It literally hasn't been more than two days without snow for the last month.

    1. Duck,
      Not too much snow here today -- about 4 inches. But it covers the icy patches where our cars are parked, so walking is quite treacherous.

      Melting coming this weekend, but tonight we'll have a refreeze.

  4. I thought it was the Chinese Year of the goat/sheep, but considering your circumstances, a snow dragon is quite applicable.

    BTW I'm still writing Year of the Horse on my checks ;)

      Dealing with this snow is like Beowulf fighting the dragon!

      He steals the breath of those trying to shovel out.

  6. In northern MD, we got another 2 on top of the ~9 still on the ground. It just made the commute sloppy.

  8. Baysider just had lunch and then coffee on a large beautiful patio in Santa Monica.
    Wish you could have joined us.

  9. Indeed. Bright side: at least you have water!

  10. Baysider: There was a weatherman recently who wrote that "California needs X amount of inches to get into a better position"....when we hit it, a few days later, he changed the amount of inches! Cracked me up. But yes, they CERTAINLY HAVE WATER on the East Coast , particularly now....and iced water :-)

    1. Z,
      Spring thaw, not far away, is going to slam West Virginia and other areas with feeder streams. If the thaw is "sudden," I expect that Difficult Run in Northern Virginia will come over its banks and close major thoroughfares.

      I'm hoping for a gradual warmup. However, already here in Northern Virginia, houses that sit "downhill" are having major problems with basement flooding. The sump pumps couldn't keep up last weekend when we had one day of warmup.

      PS: Mr. AOW live at the top of a a hill, and we're always dry. No basement flooding here.
