The Washington, DC region is great >> and it can be greater.


Stunning snowscapes in the Flickr pool

Thank goodness for snow! Without it, we wouldn't have these gorgeous additions to the Greater and Lesser Washington Flickr pool, to share with you as a small consolation for the cold and wet week.

is that a homeless person's blankets on the bench in the first photo?

Yes, it is near the Newseum. Was walking back from the Capitol and saw them covered in snow. It was very sad photo, but at the same time highlighting the weather extremes.

Every time I load the homepage, I keep seeing bodies covered by blankets in the first photo.

I love the "National Mall" image. Very Kubrick-esque with its one-point perspective.

Oh, sorry, I didn't realize that it actually was blankets. I thought it was just a weird snow formation.
