Snow Days in Ashburn

Last week provided plenty of snow days in Ashburn, and it seems we spent most of them trying to dig out and get out! By the time we were out and about, every where we went was full of people. Enjoy our photo journey through Ashburn.

By Tuesday, we were ready to get out, so we met our friend Diane King and others for a fun evening out.
