With the super cold temps outside the inclination is to hunker down indoors and wait for it to all go away. The hearty transplants from points north and west of DC think this is ridiculous and instead spent the weekend basking in the glory of a “real winter.” We locals know all too well how fickle mother nature can be and would recommend enjoying the cold, snowy goodness while it lasts because it’ll be gone before you know it.
P.S. While a lot of freezing has occurred over that past few weeks it’s good to keep in mind that even though the ice looks solid that doesn’t always mean it is. Please be careful out there!
