We had historical snow storms twice within a week in DC and its surrounding states in February 2010 . What an experience!
The first snowmaggedon hit us on February 5 and the second one hit on February 10. This time, the wind was even more powerful than before at least in our area. You could hardly see 100 meters ahead of you.
With both Snowmaggedons it snowed almost for 24 hours. We all felt cabin fever, so we had to go outside.
We got a sled from our friend as a gift, so we all got very excited to go outside to try it out! It was incredible to see the whole city covered in white snow that looked like vanilla frosting.
Both storms paralyzed the cities around DC. I think we all knew that we were done with the snow by the end of the second storm. Harsh winter allowed us to look forward to the spring and when it finally arrives, it brightens our day.
It’s memorable to have those storms for us since we’re moving to a tropical island come July this year. No snow for 3 years. I used to love the idea (and I still do), but then now I think I’m going to miss the four seasons and even this cold weather. This snow storms will definitely stay in our memory for a long time…
