It's snowing, big huge snowflakes that are only supposed to get thicker. The local press have dubbed the storm Snowquester, which looks to me like the name of a teenaged superhero who has a rocket-powered snowboard or something.

Of course they are riffing off the subject of the government funding sequester, which is another thing that DO NOT WANT. When you're part of the "company town" that is Washington DC (with the federal government as the company), things like this are more personal than political.

Can't we just call it a blizzard and be done? What's with this cutesy naming shit? The Blizzard of '78 was content to be named after its year. The Blizzard of '96 was content to be named after its year.

DON'T BE SO NEEDY, MARCH BLIZZARD OF 2013.

Stay safe. ♥

For it to be a blizzard, I feel there would have to be actual, you know, SNOW.

We had that with our last blizzard, too. Very disconcerting.

I am so DONE with winter 2013. Enough already! (I normally like snow, but we got over two and a half feet.)
