The federal government shut down this past Tuesday with a forecast of 5" of snow. No complaints here.

Polar vortex has kept us indoors too long! We went in search of landscapes devoid of pavement.

Barrett watched some English league soccer this morning at the Irish pub around the corner, freeing me up to get my chores done. This allowed for a midday trip to Union Market, in Northeast DC. We took the metro then walked, so not knowing where we were going, stumbled into some Chinese goods stores, cheap produce stands, and finally found all the yuppies.
There was a lot to take in, but we were taken with the meats, spices, and this bread pudding below. We just had the sample cup, which we confirmed has no calories :)
It has all the ingredients that one would want in life and it was wonderful. We rounded off our adventure by hitting the Italian deli, A Litteri, for lunch and wine with a screwtop. Very successful excursion!

Tired of being confined in a small apartment and cubicle at work, we took off this Saturday and went in search of rural pastures. We found em!
Drove up through Maryland and into Pennsylvania. Mostly we enjoyed the scenery, but we stopped in small town, Chambersburg.
They do a midwinter IceFest complete with chili cook off, ice sculptures and dunk tank they called the PolarPlunge

Some friends shared their Caps tickets for last nights game. We had a great time, even from the cheap seats! Caps blew a 3-1 lead and the Oilers came back to tie the game 4-4 at the end of regulation. No score in OT and they went to shootouts! Exciting stuff, and the Oilers emerged victorious.
