Weather reports indicate Washington, DC could have a snowfall of historic proportions this Saturday -- perhaps as much as 24 inches...
While some folks will be hunkered down in their houses clutching their canned goods, CarbonfreeDC invites you to make the best of it by getting together to have a glorious day of snowman making and snowball fights! With the roads closed and the city shut down, this is the perfect chance to jump on the Metro, get outside and be a kid again! :)
So grab some friends (or make some new ones) and come celebrate the blizzard of 2010 with a fun day in the snow! You bring your hat and gloves, CarbonfreeDC will supply the hot chocolate (and bathrooms) less than a block away.
Spread the word and invite the neighborhood! RSVP here: http://www.meetup.com/CarbonfreeDC/calendar/12523927/
