Snowfest 09

December 18, 2009 2 Comments A+ a-

I expect to see snowflakes falling outside of our windows at any moment now. Friends in the surrounding Washington, DC area are reporting snowfall. The local news is
calling for 14-20 inches between tonight and Sunday morning. Wow! And winter doesn't even start until Tuesday!

I am fortunate not to be flying during this weekend's Winter Wonderland. Earlier this afternoon, my airline cancelled most flights through late afternoon tomorrow. Not the best timing for a
storm...the weekend before Christmas!

So, while I am planning to enjoy our freak snowstorm, I am not hoping for ruined holiday plans...and don't forget my top travel tips and also be sure you have your Plan B in place!

And, starting Monday, I'll be flying through the day after Christmas. With all the families and holiday stress piled under our Snowfest '09, I am sure it is going to be an....adventure! I'll take
notes and let you know!

Merry Christmas, y'all.

Edit: Saturday night--airports in DC are closed for the most part, until tomorrow morning. Here's some pictures from the snowstorm:






Our neighbor e-mailed this to me this afternoon--our house from her house, around 2 p.m. Look at the snow on the roof of my car!
















The snow against the screen on the sliding glass door on our deck.














I was out playing in the snow with my neighbor, Melody. She pointed behind me and said, "Look! There's an elf!" And look what was there:




Our very own neighborhood elf*!



*He said it was his Halloween costume and he wanted to get his money's worth from it!

Okay, the snow is pretty cool and I would love to "play" in it when I get there....BUT I've got to get there and get BACK, so, can you talked to someone about the timing, please?

Hi there! Nice to see that you are blogging here again. This morning I put up some photos of the first day of winter in St Croix, US Virgin Islands.

Happy Holidays!
