Sping in DC

When I told people we were visiting DC in February, a lot of them said 'Oh, it is still going to be cold there!' to which I would reply 'That's ok, we are from the arctic.' which usually convinced them to stop talking about the COLD Washington DC weather.


The first day we arrived we were still dressed for New Hampshire and already severely overdressed. We all were amazed at the warm sunshine and we even found GRASS! Green grass! We hadn't seen that in ages. And they barely had any snow!


It got warmer and warmer and Friday was the best day ever. It was 74 degrees Fahrenheit (22 degrees Celsius) and we were out in just t-shirts, nothing with sweaters or layers or jackets or anything silly like that.


The most amazing discovery was finding snow drops. Wow.


It was quite a shock to get back to sub zero temps and tons of snow in New Hampshire.
