Happy Valentines Day and Snow Dog =)

Happy Valentine’s Day from Bethesda Actually.  Here are a couple of shots to warm your heart on this day of love. I have to say the sun mottled snow was beautiful this morning but the snowman with his trusty snowdog melted my heart. =) Alas our picture of the two together didn’t come out so we can only share the shot of snow dog himself.  Did anyone else snap the cute couple?  If so please send us a shot. And feel free to share any other pictures we can post from your Bethesda Snochi experience.

Caution Snow and Ice May Exist

So no snow day today and heading in was a mixed bag of slosh, snow and refrozen slosh and snow.  This sign says it best and here are a few pictures of the conditions this morning heading in.  Including beautiful but also blinding sunlight. Be Careful out there.

Bethesda Openings and Supplies

While much of Bethesda was closed today — even Barnes and Nobles wasn’t open when we headed by — Some places did open up for those hearty souls out to grab a cuppa joe or some supplies.  Tastee Diner, Dunkin Donuts, Bethesda Bagels and Giant were all open.   And one very aptly named clothing store, Breaking Ice, on Bethesda Avenue looked like it was opening up as we walked by.

Bethesda Snow Accumulation

It’s a strange one here in Bethesda.  We woke up to almost no snow on the trees and we wondered if this had been a bust but when we got outside the inches on the ground had really piled up over night.  Our first step out and we seemed to sink a foot.  We took out a trusty ruler and headed to Battery Park to measure the accumulation on flat area.  We got almost 28cm or just a hair over 11 inches.  That’s pretty impressive.  Any others out there measuring the snow?

Thanks Bethesda UP! And all the Clearing Crews

Within 5 mins of starting our snow-scoping walk this morning we came across a very busy Bethesda Urban Partnership Crew.  These guys had been out since 7am and I have to say the main streets of Bethesda were looking great!  Thanks guys!!!Bethesda UP

Russia has Sochi, Bethesda has SNOWchi

Just like you, we at Bethesda Actually have been obsessively checking our beloved WashingtonPost Weather Gang every time an ad comes on during the Sochi Olympics.  They unofficially named the storm SNOWCHI which we thought was perfect.  So we are borrowing it for our updates.  Any other names/suggestions out there?
