Sunday Snow Day

As most of the country knows...The Washington, DC metro area has been hit hard by a blizzard that dumped more than 30 inches of snow in most areas.  The big storm started Friday afternoon. It snowed all day Saturday and by Sunday I had to get out of the house.  The main roads were still in the process of being plowed. My husband and I set out to DC to see what was happening in the city. He had to stop by a construction site and I picked up my camera and we hit the road.  We had a great time and ventured to   Capitol Hill where I shot some of my favorite houses... 

This red brick row of townhouses is elegant trimmed in snow.
I love the stone fence in  front of this stucco facade.
What a picture perfect corner...love the red door on taupe.

Old world charm in these pastel brick Victorians.

 Girls out for a snow stroll.

 At the corner of Independence and 8th Streets NE. The cars on 8th street are almost buried.

Street scene....These trees speak to me.
It's getting late....One more stop to make before leaving the city....Off to the fish market.
Whenever it snows a lot...Who feeds the birds?...My husband...I call him the bird man. Here he is at the DC fish market feeding the seagulls and sparrows.

 The only way to get this close to the birds is to feed them.

I am envious of all that white stuff. Of course, if we got it in NC, we wouldn't know what to do with it. They call off school here if we get 1/2 inch.
