IT’S BEEN snowing for hours here in the Beltway, inches of snow already fallen and melted. This is the view outside my office.

But now the flakes are larger and coming down like a blizzard.

It’s beautiful, but then, I love the snow… It’s likely the last of this season.

I’ve updated this post with more photos, all taken along the mighty Potomac in historic Alexandria Virginia. Fort Washington has an interesting history, with Mount Vernon, Washington’s home. Oh, and by the way, a National Library is under construction right now at Mount Vernon.

The trail along George Washington Parkway, in Virginia, which weaves along with Potomac River, where birds galore make their home, including Cardinals, Bald Eagles, Owls, Hawks, Ladderback Woodpecker and many other varieties, Wrens... and so many others.

One of the most beautiful parts of the vast marshes along the Potomac.
