DC has had its second "snowstorm" of the season. Normally, the inch we got in each event would have devolved Washington DC into an accident causing, ice sliding, bread and toilet paper buying mess. I've seen it happen many times. Traffic snarls, schools close, the federal government shuts down. But since the major Snowpocalypse of December 2009 and the Snowmageddon of February 2010, the city has become desensitized to the cold powdery stuff. Of course, this means I actually have to clean off my car when it snows. I have an ice scraper that works pretty well, but it's small. I have to lean across my car to get the snow and ice off the rear window, effectively coating my front in a layer of snow. I should really bring a change of clothes for when I scrape off my car. On the good side, I did get to try out the YakTrax rubberized grippers that you can slide on your shoes to keep from slipping on the ice. They work really well. I'm glad I remembered to ask for those for Christmas.
That is pretty much all I have for today. I'm going to leave you with this great video I found. It's pretty old, but still cute. I will have to show it to my nephew the next time I see him. He still doesn't believe that there are (male) Marines who knit in the field.
