Have fun Dagny. I loved DC after a good snow and I didn't even have a Samoyed. It did tend to quiet things; besides the snow soaking up some of the noise, traffic noise was also reduced because traffic was reduced and that was always a good thing. I always walked to a local Giant grocery store so traffic itself was never an issue.

I live not far from Annapolis and work in the city of Annapolis. Nothing surprising about this. . . A year or so ago when the gas prices first spiked, a local "cash only" gas station had prices that were about 3 cents per gallon lower than any other place. A fist fight broke out in the line to get gas.

I'd rather be in New York City. My experience has been that when things get tough in New York, people there get nicer.

We haven't been out. We are snug, generators ready with plenty of gas on hand, with adapters to power the gas fired heating system if (or when) the power goes out.

Stocks of bread, TP, milk, etc. laid in days ago. We are watching the snow accumulate in the back. About 13 inches so far.

Expect that I will have to crank up the snow blower tomorrow am.

We were out walking and playing for a couple hours this morning (see pics below), before it really started snowing hard as it is right now. It's beautiful! Very few cars on the road.

Friends and I are going to venture out on snowshoes in a bit, with dogs, cameras and thermoses of hot cocoa.

Lowe hiking boots, OR gaiters, REI waterproof pants, Sugoi espresso pants, long underwear, snowboard socks, LL Bean Rugged Ridge Parka, neck gaiter, etcetera, etcetera, are keeping me warm and dry. If you've got the gear, this is delightful.

The only deterrent to walking for miles and miles is the energy it requires. This is tough stuff to walk in for long. Hence, the snowshoes.

Thank you all. This storm has now become the biggest on record for December here. And it has become one of our Top 10 on record.

And in all the best ways it is living up to the legacy of big snows: friendliness befitting a small town, every street transformed into a winter wonderland, dogs and children having the time of their lives. It is spectacular!

And here are some more pics from later in the afternoon:
