Christmas Blizzard!

Starting Friday night, snow came into the DC area and has been snowing all day long.  We have probably accumulated 24-30" of snow here in one day!  I believe it set a record for the area, the 6th largest snowstorm in DC history.  Some historic closings happened due to the storm, including the following:

International Spy Museum Closed
Metro . Above Ground Stations Closed
Metro Bus Service Suspended
Mount Vernon Estate and Gardens Closed
National Gallery of Art Closed Sunday
National Zoo Closed Saturday and Sunday
Smithsonian Institution Closed Saturday and Sunday
Springfield Mall Closed
Pentagon City Mall . Closed at 4pm
Potomac Mills Mall . Closed at 1pm
US Holocaust Museum Closed Saturday and Sunday
Verizon Center Closed Sunday
Our flute choir Christmas concert was canceled again due to snow, and church services were closed.   Also on the down side, we had to cancel the cruise we were going on for Christmas with hubby's family, but hopefully can reschedule for a later date.  Anyhow, I took some pictures of the huge snowfall, so enjoy!
