Snow Day

Well, as some of you may have heard, the District was hit with some snow yesterday. Last nite we were hit with an ice storm. While trying to chop away the 1/2 inch thick sheet of ice on our SUV I decided I would just take the day off.

Thanks to the wonders of the internet I was able to do a remote log in to the office computer and actually get some stuff done from here. . . . but I was also able to take the son out sledding.

While at work yesterday, I took a stroll around the block and snapped some pictures in Lafayette Park across the street.

The General still watches over the nation.

H Street, N.W.

George's House. Their doing major construction on Pennsylvania Avenue in front of the White House. No one really knows whats going on, but they erected these huge green screens to keep the gawkers away.

While the screens are a distraction for me, they have really ruined these folks ability to do their job. What's the use of a 24 Hour White House Vigil/Protest if no one in the White House can see you? The nukies are inside the tent. Thats a Japanese Reporter trying to coax them into appearing on television.
