Keith and The Blizzard - Life Living in Washington
Keith works for the feds and lives in downtown Washington. Having graduated from Georgetown University - Keith is a dyed in the navy blue wool Hoya fan.
On Saturday - DC was covered with 2 feet of snow. Number 2 ranked Villanova was in town to play Georgetown. Many of the fans were staying home - but Keith could not resist. The arena is 3 miles away - so he got the chance to experience the 100 year storm first hand.
Tangent - Georgetown pounded Villanova - just like they pounded Duke the Saturday before. It must have been worth the walk.
He took these pictures of Connecticut Avenue (often called Embassy Row) and the large white building - where he lives in a condo on the 6th floor. The building is called the California House and it is on California Avenue.
This morning Washington is getting a second blast - they expect another one foot layer today. The District and Montgomery County suspended plowing operations about 9:30 a.m. because of the hazardous weather conditions, and Pepco pulled its utility crews off the roads as well.
The federal government has been shut down for 3 full days. Unlike snow days for school teachers - the feds do not make up those days. According to the news - it costs the federal government $100 million for every snow day.
The video was taken from Keith's window less than an hour ago. The last picture was when Lulu visited in December. Nancy - Keith - Liz.
