You can talk about whatever is on your mind – quality of life issues, a beautiful tree you spotted, scuttlebutt, or any random questions/thoughts you may have. But please no personal attacks and no need to correct people’s grammar. This is a place to vent and/or celebrate things about daily life in DC.

Sorry for the delay!!

    Rant: 4-6 inches is just not enough to satisfy me today

    • AJSE

      Is it ever?

      • I Dont Get It


    • ET

      Not only that but it is HARD to get up! I was more tired chipping that small amount than the blizzard snow.

  • MFinSW

    Rave: Working from home with the snow falling outside.
    Rave: my roommate’s adorable new cat!
    Rant: My grandfather is in the hospital after a minor stroke – sounds like he’s going to be ok, but may end up needing additional care. Thankfully, he’s already in an assisted living situation that can increase his level of care.

    Rant: Poor Senior Lady Dogs! They used to love snow but now seem to become very disoriented in it. I let them out this morning and went to check on them after five minutes since usually Pillow is barking at the door by then. She was at the farthest part of the deck sitting in the snow and Lizzy was in the yard which by the look of the trail she left that she likely fell down the steps.
    Rave: The recommendations for the Neater Feeder! It looks like it will work although Lizzy did stand where the water bowl should be at one point.
    Rant: I can’t find my snow shovel!

      Is Pillow a nickname for Lucy?

      • I Dont Get It

        She is so out of it most of the time that she doesn’t notice that the cat is using her for a pillow.

          That sounds like it could be a great interspecies-cuddling photo for Afternoon Animal Fix!

  • ***

    RAVE: Yaktraks. That is all.

    Neither rave nor rant. Reading a great, albeit nerd inspired, book about the Metro, The Great Society Subway by Zachary Schrag. A lot of answers in here to a lot of questions posed in Metro related threads. A good read for anyone who is interested.

      Thanks for the recommendation!

    • I Dont Get It

      Looks interesting, thanks!

    Rave: The Prince put up a Rant/Revel thread for today. Thanks!
    Rave: Went to Meridian Pint for brunch.
    Rant: The ricotta cheese blintzes were very tasty but rather petite — I was still hungry when I was done.
    Rave: Generally having a nice day off, and got a lot of organizing/cleaning done over the weekend.

  • Quotia Zelda

    Rave: Finally finished my financial disclosure form. Nothing like waiting until the last minute.
    Rant: Eldest Zelda’s employer is open today, and she’s at work. She wouldn’t let Mr. Zelda drive her to work.

    Rant: I shoveled and my sidewalks were all cleared. Went out for a coffee meeting and when I came back, I nearly fell 4 times in a fully cleared block because there was a thin sheen of ice on the cleared sidewalks. Gave up walking back to metro and took a cab. Got home and my sidewalk also had a very thin sheet of ice. Took about 45 minutes to try to scrape the ice up, but I’m not sure I made much of a dent in it. So dangerous, especially to people like me who have injuries and aren’t steady on their feet. Be careful out there folks!
