DC Snowpocalypse Update

Apparently our weather in DC has made national news with the state of emergency and curfews in town (http://consumerist.com/2010/02/impending-snow-makes-washington-dc-residents-lose-their-damn-minds.html). I appreciate the calls from my friends and Dad and his brother Barry making sure we're okay, and not en route to our now-canceled vacation at the Folk School.

We're well-stocked at home, making arts and crafts. Aimee's a pro shoveler from her childhood days in upstate New York.
