Keep your pets and children inside during a blizzard by gerdaindc

Have you heard the rumor?  Due to the perfect combination of cool and moist weather patterns, DC could be in for a whole lot of snow this winter.  Our twenty inches that fell earlier this month could foreshadow much more white stuff to come.

Being from Denver, I love snowstorms, especially blizzards.  The bigger the better as far as I’m concerned.  I love how quiet things are when it snows and how it can transform a dirty, ugly city into a beautiful, serene wonderland.  Snowstorms can bring random strangers closer together, give people an excuse to stay home from school or work, and make for some great photographs.  Yet despite all of this, some people hate snow, hate the cold, and can’t wait for the sweaty, humid days of summer to return.

We’ve loved all of the snow photos that you’ve been adding to our Flickr pool.  This shot by gerdaindc takes me back to my childhood days when the kids in my neighborhood would build snowmen, go sledding, and depending on how ambitious we were, build igloos.  We may have even thrown snowballs at cars, but in those days it was all just innocent fun.

Hailing from the Mile High City, Max has also lived in Tinsel Town, the Emerald City, as well as the City of Brotherly Love. Now a District resident, he likes to write about cool photos by local photographers, the DC restaurant and bar scene, or anything else that pops into his mind.
