This Is How We Roll! Snowpocolypse 2010

What do you do when you get over 25 inches of snow and you and all your neighbors get snowed in?

You throw a margarita bonfire in your driveway of course!

The snow started around 10:30 a.m. on Friday morning… and didn’t stop until about 4 p.m. on Saturday.

Shoveling started a little on Friday evening, but all neighbors were in full force on Saturday.

Twenty-five inches later it was declared the fourth largest snow storm in DC history!

After hours and hours of shoveling… this was definitely in order!

It was fun to blow off a little snow shoveling steam… and hang out with some of the best neighbors ever!

It made for a memorable weekend!

    What a cute idea! I can’t believe you guys can sit outside like that??

    I love that! It looks like you all were definitely making the most of it. I feel guily saying this, but we’ve been having sunny days with temperatures in the mid-50’s.:)

    OK your neighborhood gets the award for coolest crowd of people this side of the blizzard. I especially love the bottles in the snow and immediately said out loud, “Whooooa why didn’t we think of that?” We had a little get together too but since the city shut down it was a small crowd (we had planned it weeks ago). Next time, I am opening up the front door and bringing the party outside!!

    What a crazy amount of snow! I can’t believe we didn’t get any where I live. I’m actually kind of jealous… 🙂
