Snowy Day in DC

So... what do you do in DC when it snows? Well.... I've found out that the city practically closes down! We didn't have church this morning and I'm sure that there won't be any school tomorrow either. So far, we've had about 5" of snow - which is Kansas is no big deal. Here in the city though, its a very big deal. They are calling it "horrid" weather on TV. Give me a break! The thing is, we might get some freezing rain on top of it and of course, that will cause problems. We listened to the radio this morning and there were lots of accidents already. I guess I believe that - the traffic is huge here, even on a snowy day.

So... what do you do in DC when it snows? You create a blog!

The Metro

Today is a new adventure.....I'm taking a taxi by myself for the first time and riding the Metro by myself for the first time. This time of day, there is absolutely no parking at the Metro station... thus the taxi to the Metro. Second, I have to take the Metro to my throat doctor because it is close to downtown DC and man on man I don't want to drive there. The traffic is unbelievable and getting there is NOT easy. I know where I"m going on the Metro - its just that I haven't ever done it by myself. Rule #1 .... don't look at anybody in the eyes. Rule #2.... know where your purse is at all times. Honestly, I'm being a little silly 'cause at this time of day, its really only business people etc. Its not scarey and the stations are nice and clean. But... its a big day for me.
