Snowmageddon 2010: The AFTER-Aftermath

Posted in DMV, News, status update by msdisdain on February 12, 2010

It is the first day back to work in over a week thanks to our friend The Snowmageddon (including Part Two).  I like many others have an indescribable excitement to be back.  This is probably due to my need for socialization as I have been cooped up in my apartment for the better part of the last 168 hours (save for the minor trips to the park and grocery store for blog writing purposes).  As it stands, The Federal Government is operating today but under a delayed arrival.  This means that it is completely understandable that my normally 20 min. commute to work today took an hour and fifteen minutes.  The office is “same ole same ole” but it was such new appeal to it.  I wanted to hug my coworkers like I hadn’t seen them in ages and appreciated (to a certain extent) the normal hustle and bustle of being back to work in NW DC.  That being said, it’s Friday and there is a substantial amount of work to do before taking holiday.  Partnered with a substantial amount of giddiness, I’m not sure how type-A productive this day will be, but it’s good to be back nonetheless.

Found this vid circulating through the DMV area social media sites – time lapsed photography of the Snowmageddon for your viewing pleasure:

Also in the NEWS, a metro train derailment took place this morning at 1013AM on the Red line near Farragut North.  No one was killed or injured.  See: Metro Train Derailment Near Farragut North Station

The White House (whitehouse.gov) put out an awesome video of the Snowmageddon as well:
