Well, the original forecast for my preferred destination was for an ice storm on Wednesday, but then they changed their minds.
It looked as though the mega-storm that went south of St Paul was going to hit Chicago and Maine, so I was safe to go East.
I had LA as a backup, but let's face it, LA has really bad public transportation and I had this yarn shop and book store on my mind so I didn't really want to go to LA.
At least not this week.
The East Coast can be so charming. And they have public transportation that's easy to use.
So I went to Alexandria and then up to Dupont Circle.
The last time I was in Dupont Circle was when Pato and I were in DC and he was being crippled by the walking so we bought him a very fancy, very expensive pair of shoes.
I had a little extra time so I went down to the mall and popped in to the American History Museum, a.k.a. America's Attic, which is where I saw Julia Child's kitchen and some very cool old currency.
Tomorrow I'll try to post the yarn and book acquisitions.
