And as it turns out, snowstorms are apparently very conducive to tackling home improvement projects:
DEC 2009 Snowpocalypse:
Our snowed in carport, and snow sweeping in action. Not as effective as show shoveling, but less labor intensive.
DEC 2009 Snowm Improvements:
FEB 2010 Snowmaggedon/Snowpocalypse 2.0:
Snobama!! And my parents gave us a shovel for Xmas. Best. Gift. Ever.
Sledding down the steps of Malcom X park was awesome. Almost as awesome as Kisa's ski lodge sweater.
FEB 2010 Snowm Improvements:
Paint color is difficult to capture w/ your avg point and shoot camera, but this color, Organic Garden, is gorgeous.
After: Graceful Gray is the paint color, again - not captured well by the camera, but we like it!
So there you have it. Snowstorms are fun. You can get your HGTV on, and then go participate in a massive snowball fight with all the other gov't employees who have a snow day (and hopefully not have a gun drawn on you by humorless DC police).
