Snow!


 
As I'm sure you all know, a big snowstorm hit the East Coast this weekend!  Was anyone affected by the snow?  Since DC isn't used to snow, a lot shut down here.  Above ground trains weren't running on the metro, bus service stopped completely, and federal government agencies were closed yesterday!   As for me personally, I didn't have to work at Sephora at all this weekend and I got the day off at my office job yesterday.  On Saturday, I walked from Foggy Bottom to my apartment (on Capitol Hill), taking pictures along the way.  (The pictue shown isn't mine; it's from telegraph.co.uk.)  I will post some of my pictures later this week.
So, what about you all?  I know at least sy and sam should have been affected by the snow.  What good (and bad) effects did you feel from the storm?

Finally got some snow here in Colorado! Supposed to get up to 12 inches... peanuts compared to Roar's 21 inches!

I hope you made/make it out on time, harmony! I have a flight this evening and I'm not worried about it being canceled or delayed, but I'm worried that the airport is going to be completely crazy because so many people couldn't fly out this weekend and had to reschedule their flights.

Yup snowing in Chicago the last couple of days. I haven't had to go out in it that much. I love watching it from my window. I just hope I fly out on time in the morning.

No snow here. :( Course, we pretty much never get snow in the Bay Area. If I want snow I have to drive out to Tahoe. Which I'm hoping to do real soon!

You guys are too sweet. :hug: We actually were told that a chance of snow in Estes during Christmas was something that happened once every decade or so. It was definitely an unplanned surprise! We actually had the reception at Lake Shore Lodge because the Stanley was way overpriced. :) But I love the Stanley, it's such a gorgeous hotel. Kim, I agree with snarky that most girls think about these things.

Sy not only had a gorgeous wedding, but she looked amazing too! (I've seen the pics!) I think telling the kids that Mom and Dad got married in the middle of a blizzard just sounds cool. :) Ya'll are talking about winter weddings... the are cheaper as well. Since June and July is the wedding season, you can find all kind of deals for December/January weddings. My best friend got married in February and she saved a TON of money.

I think so, too amy! But, I was all proud of myself for pretty much avoiding it. Then, my sister had to go and get engaged and married! She ruined it for me.

hahaha kim. i think everybody does a little pre-pre-pre-wedding planning. it's hard not to, when you go weddings, and be like "i like that", "i hate that", etc. etc. :)

I don't even have a serious boyfriend, so I really shouldn't be putting much thought into this, but I can't help it! I think a LOT of women do the same thing, Lil! :)
lilkimbo lilkimbo 4 years 39 weeks
Yes, I can confirm (based solely on pictures) that sy's wedding looked amazing. I really, really, want to have a winter wedding, but I want it to be a pretty winter wedding, snow and all. I am afraid that I'll schedule it for a weekend when it's usually snowy and not get snow. Also, February is typically the snowiest month in Ohio (which is where I will probably get married, if I ever do), but I don't want to have my wedding near Valentine's Day. I don't even have a serious boyfriend, so I really shouldn't be putting much thought into this, but I can't help it! I really hadn't thought about it much before, but I started to think of everything I want for my wedding while we were planning my sister's wedding.

it looked AMAZING! Oh, I bet! Did you guys have a reception at the Stanley?

OMG tiff! That is one heck of a drive you had. I'm glad you made it safely. It must have been a mess out there. Amy, it was actually the same time as our wedding. So all of our guests had to brave the blizzard mountain roads up in Estes to get to our wedding. we felt terrible but it looked AMAZING! ;)

I love the pictures! Everything looks so beautiful. We were definitely affected by the storm. We drove to Ohio on Saturday, which is normally about a 10 hour drive. It turned into a 19 HOUR drive! West Virginia was a wreck, and the turnpike was shut down. We got off the turnpike, and started driving on a secondary highway, which was shut down as well, so we took a side road, and drove into a snow bank. Luckily, there were tons of locals driving, and someone had chains, and helped pull us out. Then we drove a little farther, and ran into a man from Charleston, WV who told us that we could follow him to the next turnpike entrance. When we got there that was shut down, so we ended up following him on this mountain road that was COVERED in snow. People had driven off the road everywhere, but we somehow made it without incident. Of course, we were going about 20 mph. Luckily my husband is a good driver.

Oh Sy! Were you here for that crazy storm around Christmas?! We didn't live here yet when that happened, but EVERYTHING was shut down. The grocery stores were cleaned out.... I wish I'd been here. I love blizzards.
starangel82 starangel82 4 years 39 weeks
Ha. We get 2 inches here in MS and school, work, and church is canceled. :)

Thanks amy! My first ever blizzard was in Colorado three years ago during Christmas. It was insane! But fun and beautiful.
amybdk amybdk 4 years 39 weeks
Roar... I can not believe that you guys got 21 inches and your job didn't cancel work! That's INSANE! I feel like people in Colorado are kind of wimpy about the snow and stuff gets called off when we get around 12 inches.
