Flashback Monday: Ghosts of Snowpocalypses Past

Good morning, Restonians. You call this piddling dose of Mother Nature's spittle snow? BRING IT ON! We've been through far, far worse:

2011. How soon we forget.

2010, when in desperation folks near Sunrise Valley Elementary created a graven image of a sun god to bring on the melting.

The sun god was clearly unimpressed. Dance shovel, puppets, dance shovel!

And from way back in ought-nine, our favorite, for reasons that should be readily apparent, the end.

    Calibrating the snowfall so perfectly just up to the second letter S...proof that God does indeed have a sense of humor

  2. Hey, where's that shot of the "Calligraphy in Yellow" on the snow in front of RA HQ?
