The View from South of the Potomac River: Snow Day in Northern Virginia

Snow Day in Northern Virginia

The first measurable snow of the year fell in Alexandria, VA today... with about an inch combined snow and sleet turning everything slick & slippery.  What to do on a day like today... build a snowman of course!

                                  Dad and Kurt with Mr Freezy

It took more work than you think; with just about an inch on the ground there is a lot of rolling to do.  Ultimately, we used a few other creative ways to bulk up Mr. Freezy (all natural of course!) and if we get the freezing rain that is expected, he will have a nice shiny coat of ice by morning.

Here is hoping that your snowy Sunday was as enjoyable as ours!

Love the photo AJ! We thought we were in for snow here, instead we got a cold wet damp rainy mess!

Mitch - You may have gotten the better end of the deal... if we do have freezing rain tonight the commute in the morning will be horrific.  Merry Christmas and have a prosperous 2014!

You did a great job with only an inch of snow!    We have had a few inches here, and still frigid!

AJ, That is a good size snowman. That took lots of work but your little guy looks very satisfied with your work.
