This past Thursday's snowfall put us Virginians in about four inches of snow. It seems miniscule, but any amount of snow in the Washington area puts everyone into a frenzy and before you know it, the streets are covered in a good inch of salt and sand.
I had a great time sledding as the snow was whipping around Thursday night. This was all possible thanks to wool socks, Bean Boots, and thick gloves. The snow was the heavy type of that makes sleds go fast and building snowmen possible. The snow has since disappeared and is replaced by the polar vortex to remind us that it is still winter (even though it's predicted to be 56 degrees on Sunday).
