Yesterday, in anticipation of the blizzard, the government was only open in the morning, and a little after one in the afternoon, after I’d run a couple of last-minute errands, I found myself walking home from the DC Metro’s King Street Stationwith the snow starting to fall. When I began my walk, it wasn’t yet sticking to much, but already there were plenty of flakes. This was the best picture I could get of them; you can see it stands out against the darker parts of the rail bridge.
Before I had finished my long walk up King Street, it was sticking to more things, including dirt, the leftover snow from Wednesday night, and especially leaves:
Halfway through my walk and there was enough on the pavement for footprints to be visible.
Unfortunately my phone shorted out right after I took this picture and wouldn’t turn back on until I got home and could plug it in, but by the time I got home the snow was starting to cover everything. Now it’s nearly cover my mom’s car and the small tree in our front yard, which I may take photos of later.
