National Museum of the American Indian - Washington, DC

I spent the cold and snowy afternoon at the National Museum of the American Indian in DC. Luckily, not too many other visitors had the same idea and the museum was not overcrowded and I could enjoy the exhibits at my own pace. In true Smithsonian-style, the exhibits are well thought out and relevant. Exhibits introduce visitors to who the Native Americans are today through their art, recorded interviews and culture - traditional and modern.

Washington, DC - Brink of a Blizzard?

I arrived in DC today despite forecasters predicting a major blizzard. The workshop I'm attending Sunday morning broadcast an email stating the seminar is a go despite the snow and would only be postponed if there were a loss of electricity. And so I boarded my flight to DC. Plus, I'm thinking logically - it's a city accustom to living in snow - life goes on in snow in our Capital, right? We shall see. As of yet (8:30 PMish) the snow isn't sticking. It's been snowing -since I landed, but not sticking. I even had the pleasure of being pelted with the salt chunks while returning to my hotel tonight. Enjoy some images of my day.

Southern and Proper

Am I to assume that "appropriate attire" is anything but a towel? Snapped this from my room at the Gaylord Opryland in Nashville, TN.
