Snowmageddon

Also known as the Snowpocalypse, Snowverload, and (in my own inner monologue) Snowmygoodnessgracious. Not too long ago we were caught smack dab in the midst of the mid-Atlantic's biggest snowstorm in three centuries. The most memorable aspect? The icicles. Three feet long and shimmering with a diamond-like glitter in the cold winter sun--every time I passed under an awning, I felt like they were aiming right for me.

Walking under icicles is really dangerous. Seriously. They can fall at any time. I would be totally freaked out if I were living in NYC right now.

montague - Thank you!

evan - That's exactly what I thought every time I walked under them. But this was actually in D.C. NYC does not have such deadly icicles.

Bahieh - Thanks for tweeting my dear!

Melly - I was wandering around all day looking for the craziest, longest icicles I could find!

Belinda - Thanks for visiting!
