D.C. has been slammed with a wintry mix. Unfortunately, the federal government didn't close, so I had to go to work (remember that I'm saving my vacation days for Mexico). The commute wasn't that bad beyond the lack of cleared sidewalks. My pet peeve with snow/slush days in D.C. is that the snow trucks pile the stuff in the gutters, making it almost impossible for pedestrians to cross the street without miss stepping and landing in a puddle of melted snow and ice. My only concern is going home tonight and facing icy sidewalks. I hope I don't fall.
