    It's so pretty. I wish we we're getting snow here in Oklahoma for Christmas.

  4. If you want something ruined, put a republican in charge

    This is no where near the snow job that republicans have been giving the American people.

    If this global warming wasn't going on, this could be a lot worse.

    I do want to wish all of the senators and house members good luck driving or flying in this snow; this type of snow is very dangerous to be in at all. Snow is made up of water droplets that froze together, and as they do so, they become more and more dense; that's why snow and ice is such a pain to drive in. I know the President of the United States is there to, and I hope he and his driver are careful in this; being stuck or being injured in this type of weather is a fate absolutely no one deserves to have. I have only had a minor case of frostbite before, and, to be honest, it hurt like you know what at that area for over a week; I hate to imagine a major case on anyone. To everyone out there, please be as careful as you can be, and remember this is Christmas, this is a time of year where we should help eachother out and give to the less fortunate. Lets forget this political, partisan stuff for a bit, and enjoy life. Thank you, and good luck to everyone.

    We've been getting a snow job by the Republican Wingnuts for almost a decade now – big deal about the white stuff on the ground? Don't think so. We have to deal with that all the time without the heated subways, etc., the Senators and Representatives requisitioned for themselves.

    Boy, howdy. This December storm is the cleanest, most wholesome event that's occurred inside the Beltway in years. Let's hope the sanitation effects waft inside the pathetic halls of Congress, the White House and Supreme Court.
