Hey there! How’s everyone doing today? I’m having a great day because this morning I got to work from home with my favorite guys!

We are expecting a blizzard in DC starting tonight, and the weathermen are predicting about two feet of snow. That’s a lot for this area! Then again, sometimes they are totally wrong and it’s just flurries.

I saw this on Facebook the other day and snapped a picture of it. It’s too true around here!

This time though, I think the weathermen might be right. It’s been pretty cold for the last couple of weeks (meaning the snow has a better chance of sticking) and everyone on the news has been talking about the storm non-stop and showing ominous storm clouds on the radar, so we will see what happens!

It actually snowed a bit on Wednesday night, and the whole area freaked out. I think the government was so worried about this weekend’s blizzard that they forgot to put salt down for the small storm on Wednesday. The roads were a mess! Fabio had a work dinner and when he came home, he said the roads were absolutely terrible. He saw so many fender benders and cars were slipping and sliding all over the place (I saw on the news that even the President’s motorcade was sliding around!). He wasn’t lying – this is what the traffic looked like at 9:43 pm. Crazy!

Let’s hope things go better with this next storm. Gulp.

As for me, I’ve had a glorious day so far! Fabio made us some delicious cappuccinos to kick off the morning.

And then made us scrambled eggs on top of an arepa, our favorite Colombian breakfast. Yum!

I wound up dousing mine in Cholula hot sauce right after snapping this pic. 😉

The federal government is closed today as of noon, so we now have the rest of the afternoon off! We are meeting some friends down the street for dinner tonight, and we all said we were kind of excited to venture out into the snow. Luckily we live next to a bunch of restaurants and bars and hit up the grocery store for some extra supplies yesterday, so we should be all set for the storm! I predict a lot of drinking in our apartment with friends over the weekend, which is a-ok with me. Bring on the snow!

Question of the day: What’s your favorite thing to do when it snows?

You better believe I plan to watch Frozen and drink lots of hot chocolate with marshmallows. I could see some baking in my future too. 🙂

  1. We don`t have a free days then it`s snow in my city 😀 But then I home in snow day I love sit in my blanket and drink hot tea while reading book.

  2. I wish we had Snow Days over here in CA! We are just dancing in all the rain we’ve desperately needed the last two years. Sounds like you had a fabulous Friday, can’t wait to hear how fun playing in the snow was. That breakfast looks tummy, I want to try an arepa now. Anything carb related sounds amazing, am I off base with calling that a carb? Haha! Xoxo, ganeeban

  3. How exciting! Snow days are fun but only if they don’t last too long (and people don’t get hurt!) but I’d get such cabin fever if I had to stay indoors for a long period of time. Hopefully it wasn’t too bad for you guys!
