A Walk In The Snow

The “white death” came to Arlington today. So the wife and I took a stroll around the neighborhood.
Here’s the shot out of the front window.

The buses were following the snowplows. Pretty smart.

We headed over to Arlington National Cemetery. I have always found graveyards fascinating. My beloved? Not so much.

Here’s my honey shooting at something. She grew up in the Far East of Russia. She thinks snow is normal. In fact, she revels in it.
I grew up in the southern U.S. I can’t stand the stuff. Somehow we get along. Just one of life’s little mysteries, I guess.

I didn’t see anyone on a bicycle.

Back to my ‘hood. Kids playing in the park. Enjoy it while you can, youngsters. You’ll come to hate it, too.

Home again, home again, jiggety-jig.

It’s raining now; so, it’ll freeze tonight. Fun for the morning rushhour.

  1. Very nice. BTW, I came across a video that made me think of you for some reason. The language gets salty a couple of minutes in. I didn’t make it all the way through. But you might like the beginning.

  2. How beautiful. I’ve been to Arlington National Cemetery many times, but have never seen it covered in snow. It’s lovely.

    I wrote a little about Arlington in this old IB post – the pictures are gone now, but they were stock stuff. Anyway, some of my thoughts about visiting there,

  3. Very nice pictures; excellent work! I’ve spent most of my live in northeast Ohio, so snow is normal to me too.
