A Capitol Christmas

Christmas Tree on the West Lawn of the Capitol

Christmas Day dawned bright and glorious. The skies were a lovely blue with wisps of clouds here and there. Tonight, it was crisp and equally bright with a nearly full moon.

The Jefferson Memorial at the Tidal Basin. To the left, you can see the Capitol in the distance.

On the way home this evening, I went on a little photo safari, capturing Washington in a rare moment of peacefulness. These are just a few of the pictures I took.

The Washington Monument from the Tidal Basin

To our friends near and far, Merry Christmas from Washington, D.C.!

Phoebe: Thank you! We wished for snow here, but didn't get any. Did Mr. Park snowblow Mrs. Winestein's sidewalk or was he a prick again?

Merry Christmas!

I checked. Somebody did her sidewalk, but I'm not sure if Mr. Park did it.

We're getting more snow tomorrow; I'll blow really hard in a south-easterly direction so you can get some too.

Phoebe: Maybe Mr. Parks got a touch of the Christmas spirit. Or maybe... Maybe you really did write your message in lights whilst under the influence!

It feels like it's cold enough here for snow. That damned humidity makes it colder than it actually is, though, so all we end up with is rain. Bleh.
