snOMG: here we go again!

Whatever you choose to call it, Snowpocalypse, snOMG (or snOMG2), snOMGasm or my personal reigning champions Snowpocalypse II: Son of Snowpocalypse (This Time It’s Personal) and Snowpocalypse 2: Electric Boogaloo… the snow is coming! At least that’s what everyone panicking, hoarding, declaring emergencies and planning to work from home would have you believe. We’ve definitely seen more than our fair share of snow this Winter which is just fine by me. I actually love the stuff, what I don’t love is getting snowed in on my own. Cabin Fever sets in and it’s not pretty. Growing up in Georgia, we got sparse blizzards*, so I don’t really have proper winter clothes. I know, I know, I’ve lived in DC for 13 years, I should be more prepared. But honestly, since I rarely have to go anywhere when it snows, staying in is fine by me. Though I just got a text from a friend:

Ok… I can’t take another weekend trapped in my joint!

So… maybe I should swing by a store and get some gloves and/or boots, just in case I need to get some fresh air. :mrgreen:

For the more adventurous of you during the storm, there are some snowball fights planned this weekend:



Whatever you end up doing, whether braving the cold, locking yourself in, or heading out for some good-natured child-like fun, stay warm, stay safe and enjoy the snow!

* But make no mistake, when they arrived, they were proper traffic-halting, school-closing, power-cutting blizzards. Not the “one flake falls and everyone goes insane” light snowfalls.

** I’m still listed in a few places as living in Mount Pleasant, oops!

    We’re preparing down here as well, although a lot will depend on where the rain/snow demarcation line falls – we could get 2″ or 2′.

      I’m headed to the store shortly to pick up a few things. My pantry is mostly stocked, but I’m sick of getting bored eating the same ol’ stuff during storms.

      More reports keep coming in making everyone panic. The lower inches number keeps rising (8, 10, 12, 16) but that upper limit of 24″ seems pretty steady. This will be fun!

    Nice job on the snowball fight front! Maybe we’ll finally meet each other at one of them.

    Curious if Hamiltons is sponsoring the one on the Mall. Smart marketing, if they are.

    You should post your guesstimate for the final snowfall tally. Everyone’s guesses are welcome!

    There’s also a snowball fight at Noon on 14th & U in front of the Reeves Center set for Saturday morning.
