tragically, did not hear any thundersnow  
I can now officially say I walked almost a mile uphill in the worst snowstorm of the year just to get to work.

Called a cab, they just said they didn't have anyone available. At all. Dithered for a few, then decided to hike up to the Metro. Fun! Had to skip the Strathmore grounds, because no way those would be ford-able. Went up Strathmore Ave. instead, then walked down the Pike. Walked in the road most of the way, as I could follow the tire tracks, and frankly, I have no idea where the sidewalks are. Good times. When I got to the station, there was ice in my hair.

There is formally a crapload of snow out there, people. Buses and trains are running, but everything else is slow-going.

I do have to compliment my own forethought at bringing a spare pair of socks and jeans to change into once I got here. The wet pair are currently drying in one of the equipment rooms that are like 80 degrees and bone dry.

I fix the internet! Internet doesn't care if it's snowing.

heya... hopefully everything will be cleared enough for you head home safely. But if you get stranded in the city, you're welcome to crash here in Adams Morgan.
