    Snowpacalypse the Sequel

    Posted by: Chris

    Dc winter wonderland
    Dc car snowmounds You might have gathered from the paucity of posts that we here in the Washington, D.C., area have been a bit busy, what with the blizzard(s) and all. Last night and today brought Snowpacalypse Part Deux.

    When Snowpacalypse (or Snowmageddon, as some are calling it) dumped some 20 inches on the D.C. area last weekend, the temps hovered just below freezing, which made for light, wet snow and the perfect playground for massive snowball fights. It also yielded pretty scenes like the one I captured on Willard Street in Adams Morgan that looked straight out of a Tim Burton movie. (Those mounds of snow are cars.)

    Well, the sequel hit last night and like most movie versions, this one was bigger but not better. The temps are lower and the wind is much, much stronger, resulting in crazy snow drifts and cutting blasts of snow even on a short walk outside to check things out. Until the gusts die down, there won't be so many snowball fights and sled rides as before. (Oops, I was wrong: Dupont Snowball Fight Part Deux is set for today at 2 p.m.)

    Here are a couple of pics I snapped from the relative discomfort of the front porch of my friend Tom's home in the Shirlington neighborhood of Arlington:

      Great to see the abusive Bieber and Socarides exposed -- they are still being quoted by homophobe ideologues such as Archbishop Andre Leonard and Fr Tony Anatrella. It is very valuable to be reminded of how strongly in command this debased Freudianism was only a few decades ago; a little like trawling though the antisemitic rhetoric of the past.

      I love these Snicker commercials! They are so creatively funny. I am so glad to see a strong come back for Betty White. What a great tribute for her career.
