After many years and a few Christmas celebrations here in Washington, DC it looks like the Hat Trick will finally get to enjoy a White Christmas. The Hat Trick Family survived the “Blizzard of 2009” that dropped 16 inches of snow on the Washington, DC area beginning Friday night and lasting well into the night on Saturday. We are now in the process of digging out while also trying to finish preparations for Christmas. More importantly we are also doing our best to avoid the Washington drivers out there who simply don’t know how to drive in this kind of weather!
Unless an unprecedented amount of global warming takes place in the next three days it looks like we will have some snow on the ground for Christmas. This was the first real big snow for our son (very exciting for him!) and our dog has also taken a lot of joy out of the snowfall. Even the Hat Trick enjoyed getting some exercise on a sunny Sunday when I dug our car out of the drifts. Enjoy the photos as we quickly approach the biggest holiday of the year. Merry Christmas!
