Let’s all take a minute to appreciate that we just survived one of the roughest stretches of arctic weather in D.C. in recent memory. Whether you spent the past days huddled at home or in one of the city’s cozy restaurants, I think everyone is glad it’s over! (I certainly didn’t decide to live in this place because of the cold.)

I SCREAM, YOU SCREAM, WE ALL DREAM OF ICE CREAM
