Warning: A picture heavy post!
DC, and the east coast, was pummeled by Winter Storm Jonas this weekend which was aptly nicknamed Snowzilla. Snow started Friday afternoon and we woke up to about 10 inches on Saturday morning only for the bullseye of the blizzard to pass through over the course of the next 12 hours. By the time snow stopped falling we had near 20 inches in our neck of the woods but other parts of the city had 22+ inches.
I've never seen so much snow in my life! Though I've been to the mountains, I've never seen this much snow on the road or in a city.
On Saturday afternoon, there was a slight break in the storm so Aaron and I took a walk around the neighborhood and up to the Capitol Building. We walk this route to the metro each day so it was surreal to see everything covered in snow and the streets so empty.
We live about 10 minutes from the Capitol Building which we were told was the neighborhood spot for sledding. It was stunning to see the grounds covered in snow but we had no idea it would also look like a ski resort! There were dozens and dozens of sledders plus people with proper ski gear and snow shoes. It was wild, you guys!
We didn't have a sled so I grabbed a sign from a protest the day before to slide on. It didn't make for a great sled but it did the trick.
