Washington, DC - Blizzard of 2009

December 20, 2009 | Posted in Personal

I spent the morning out with friends trekking around the Capitol in one of the biggest snowstorms in recent history - about 20 inches or so in just over 24 hours.  Below is one of my favorite images from our outing is of the 2009 Capitol Christmas Tree which sits on the West side of the U.S. Capitol.  On a clear day you would be able to see a long stretch of the National Mall down to the Washington Monument which is about 15 blocks away, but with the snow coming down at about two inches an hour when this image was taken you were lucky to be able to make out the trees that sit about 15 yards away.  A fun fact is that the United States Department of Agriculture Forest Service has provided the Christmas trees since 1970.
