It snowed all day Wednesday–giving us another 10 inches or more on top of the 30 inches on the ground from the weekend–and the wind blew and blew. The National Weather Service warned us not to go outside, lest we become disoriented and get lost in the snow. It got so bad that at one point the road crews were called in, out of both danger and futility. The snow stopped in the late afternoon, but conditions are still terrible and the wind is still blowing. My school has declared a second snow day in a row, something I don’t ever recall happening, even when I lived in Wisconsin. This was the most snow the D.C. area has had in a century. And now the digging.
