Chula Chula Vista B-) She'll get a Big Kick out of this! Precious pic~

Dodd and Shelby look particulary depressing :(

That snow at the White House looks surreal when we haven't really had that much up here in Middle New York State.

4. I drove home in snow like that a week ago...
... one of the worst hours of my life. (And I've been through more than my fair share of tornados.)

Here's DC's traffic cams so you can watch the snow pile up....

5. Oh! I see what the problem has been! The Republicans haven't seen that chart!
I'll be a good bi-partisan citizen and send this to Boehnet, et all, THEN I'm sure they'll stop spreading those untruths!

Thanks again, Clio -- and especially thanks for DC traffic cams. I have a fantasy of being in DC when it snows. That shot of the WH is beautiful.

:hi:
