I heard one of the local newscasters yesterday refer to "Snowmageddon" but I was only listening over my shoulder while I was here at the computer, and only half listening so I couldn't even figure out what the heck he was saying from context.  It wasn't till this morning when I read the invented term on CNN that the light went off in my head and I realized what the guy had said yesterday.

For the first time, to my conscious knowledge, a major snow storm tracked far enough to our south to leave us unscathed.  Two feet of snow in Washington, D.C. and this is what I awoke to yesterday morning...

What I didn't sweep with a broom was melted by noon and we were dry!  The car didn't even need to be brushed off.  The wind was sufficient to clear the light amount of snow that had fallen from its smooth surface.

Another storm is headed this way for Wednesday.  I'll hope for a rerun of this one!

Mother nature is indeed whimsical. Serves the politicians right! They need to be frozen in snow!!

I love the idea of living in New England. The snow thing is why I don't actually do it!
