Snowmaggedon 2010?

Check this out!
I'm in DC right now, and this is all that anyone is talking about:

Its supposed to be something like 16-28 inches of snow over the next couple of days. Even for an Idaho girl, that is a LOT of snow.

People here are going crazy - there has been a run on the grocery stores, gas stations, etc. as people are getting ready to be snowed in for a while. Most schools and businesses are closed today or else shutting down early. The city has warned that the above ground parts of the metro will be closing after 8 inches.

As for us: movies have been rented, I have on super thick socks, just sent a grocery list to Vic to pick up on his way home (the government is releasing employees a half day early), am turning on the fire, creating a snow music mix to accompany my job searching, and am maybe *over* excited with the idea of being snowed in for a couple of days! (Right now, I'm watching very innocent looking flakes float their way down, and promptly melt when they hit the ground. I wonder if all of the hype will be true?)

Here's the menu for night one of the snow fest:

Happy snow-weekend to everyone in the Northeast!

PS - special shout out to my friend K.C. who reported to Peace Corps El Salvador this week! Super proud and excited for her. And glad she made it out of D.C. before the snow craze. :)
