This has been probably the second worse winter of my life. The worse was 2002-2003 when I lived in Upstate New York. That winter we got hit with an 8 inch snow every other day (at least that's what it felt like). Although, I'm pretty sure, the DC area won't have it this bad again for a while, I'm not taking any chances. Since I'm self-employed and can work remotely, I've decided I'm migrating south for winter. Maybe Puerto Rico (photo above was taken in PR in 2009) or the Dominican.... who knows. Anywho... enough about my issues.
