And the forecast called for snow!

December 5, 2007, 7:49 PM

First snowfall of the year in Washington today. It was cold as hell, and my bus in the morning was 40 minutes late. It was very cold and snowing, and I’m standing on the sidewalk waiting for the bus. No fun. And Metro was running more slowly as well due to snow on the rails in the aboveground sections.

But I did get pictures…

This is the snow in the morning, in the vacant lot next to my apartment.

And this is after work, at Dupont Circle on the way back to the Metro. Certainly made for a slippery walk back to the Metro in the evening.

And what a difference a year makes. Last year, if I was seeing it snow in Washington in person, I’d be high-tailing it out of town, to get back to Stuarts Draft while the getting was still good. Now, I can actually enjoy snow in Washington, which is actually kind of neat. DC looks so pretty in the snow, too.

Web site: Photos of Dupont Circle, including some snow shots. I intend to do my own snow shots of Dupont Circle one day, but this snow's not going to last before I can go shoot.

Quote: And by the way, it snowed more in Silver Spring than it did in downtown Washington today. Silver Spring already had a coating when I was waiting for the bus, but DC wasn't so thick yet. Then later on, Silver Spring was still thicker snow-wise than it was in DC...
