in DC: Snowpocalypse!

So, it’s finally here. The big one. Woo. Hoo. That was snapped at 5:45 this morning. Michael and I were kinda skeptical about the snow last night and I woke up thinking “Oh there won’t be any big deal!” By...

DC: money in the bags

Or as I’m sure the plan will come to be called… nickel bags. I remember when San Francisco banned plastic bags, and some shopping chains followed suit nationwide like IKEA & Whole Foods. I even remember when stores would reward...
