The nice part about the East Coast is that traveling to other states and major cities is only a short drive away.
The bad part about the East Coast is that ice and snow storms impede on these short drives. Apparently the Winter's Worst Weather Hits East this weekend, so Alex and I are going to stay and explore the slightly more warm DC.
I may have been born in Minnesota and spent 2 winters in DC, but I still have California intolerance for cold. I hope my friends up in the New England and Midwest areas are staying warm! Picture of NY below...COLD.
