Freedom Friday: The Thundersnow Edition

Hey Good Folks!

As a native midwesterner, I am still amazed at how the DMV struggles with snow storms.  If there aren’t issues with the snow trucks, then there are power outages.  And I really felt for the folks who were stuck in traffic for 4 to 7, even 13 hours trying to make it home in the storm.  It is just truly amazing to me.  Yet folks keep saying, people aren’t used to the snow around here.  *looking to the side*  Uuuummm, if you have lived here all your life, how are you not used to the snow? *smh*   Anyhoo, I hope this weekend will give folks an opportunity to relax and gear up for next week.   For those who had some mild cabin fever from the snow day, check out the happenings this weekend.


The Washington Auto Show is a huge event displaying more than 700 new makes and models of cars, trucks, mini-vans and sport utility vehicles from over 42 domestic and import automakers. The Washington Area New Automobile Dealers Association (WANADA) sponsors the auto show each year to entice, educate and entertain hundreds of thousands of consumers. The latest innovations in alternative fuels will take center stage at the 2011 Washington Auto Show. This is a great way to learn about more energy-efficient vehicles. Visitors will also find free car giveaways, special guests, promotional contests, childrens activities and live entertainment.
