My Other DC Stringer Reports in...

Fran says:

Side street of my apartment building. I went up the road to CVS and the snow is delightfully crunchy and easy to walk on. Right now. I fear what the freezing rain will do to the roads and sidewalks.
While walking, couldn't help but think of the Donner Party and what the people endured.(Last night I watched a film/doc about the Donner party.)
Pat Collins and his ruler were planted at his usual spot near the gas station. Pat, he's a broadcaster who literally measures each snowfall with a big blue ruler and interviews passersby trudging through the snow. He was setting up when I passed and said "Here we go again.'" He just smiled as snowflakes danced on his nose.
