One uniquely quiet winter moment in the city.
Less than a mile from Reagan National Airport, I could even hear the cold wake of the river knocking up against the shore in the chill of the morning.
Old Town, looking towards the Masonic Temple. Christmas lights still hanging on the trees, pre-rush hour.
In mid-February this year, the Washington area had a string of days that hovered right at or just above zero outside.
I didn’t work the day it only got up to 2 degrees with a windchill of 18 below O. I did stay home under the covers and discovered sometime around noon just how little insulation that there was around our stairway windows. The ice was frozen to the curtain coming through the outside. I pulled the curtain free from the ice build up to see this lovely row of frozen window frame.
Can’t really explain to a cat why they can’t go outside to see the birdies today. The snow against the door was higher than Mr. Floyde’s little mind could comprehend……..
No weather conditions really stop the traffic in D. C. but it can slow them down some when it’s this chilly out.
A view from Union Station in the heart of the city.
A hillside at Arlington National Cemetery.
Cattails in the snow. Some things look so much better with that beautiful fresh white dusting on them!
Even the birds on the Bay are counting down the days to spring I think.
