So cold. So very, very cold.

I tagged along with Sexy Nerd this week on a business trip to Washington DC. The weather forecast warned against it, but I decided to take my chances because I'd never been. 

Next week, he's jetting off to Napa Valley. I may have chosen the wrong business trip. 

Here's a photo of me freezing my butt off, on the warmest day of the entire trip!!!

I've lived in the Bay Area and the desert. I've never experienced such cold weather in all my life. It was BRUTAL! Saturday warmed up enough to snow and snow some more (and then, it snowed a little more) until the snow was finally replaced with something called "freezing rain".

I had a second pair of pants on under these jeans. How can people live like this?

There were a few people who were excited to see me during my trip...until they found out I'd need showing around during the blizzards (plural! WTF, east coast?) of the century. Deal breaker.
Apparently, DC broke several records* for freezing temperatures during my visit.  Yaaaaaaaay!

 *This may or may not be accurate. As I'm fairly certain I was in the final stage of hypothermia, I heard what I wanted to hear.

Recognize my scarf? It was featured in my holiday gift guide and it's the best scarf ever. Much to Sexy Nerd's embarrassment, I've been all over DC with it wrapped around my head, leaving only a sliver of an opening for my eyes (and if I had a long stretch to walk with few obstacles, not even that.)

Today was finally decent enough to venture outside. You know,  in the 2 hours before heading to the airport.

Napa Valley is overrated anyway,  right?
