Snowmageddon memories a trending topic

By Jason Samenow

The Twitter universe is buzzing with Snowmageddon memories since we put out the request. And right here on the CWG blog, we've had some great stories told. Keep them coming.

Where were you when Smowmageddon hit?

Tell us on Twitter using #snowmemberwhen.

Here are some highlights (or lowlights) from Twitter so far...

Finally, here's a great video showing the barren shelves and endless lines at a local Safeway as the first flakes started to fall from CWG reader @ryaneades.

Great Snowmageddon documentary!

I can't help but think how much of that food from the abandoned shopping carts would have had to be thrown out though :-(

I was shoveling snow off the deck and, in accordance with my wife's wishes (she's a carnivore, while I'm an omnivore), I was firing up the gas grill so she could have her Friday night steak. Needless to say, she got her steak.

Let's shed last year's memories, and focus on the present. CWG, what's going to happen on Thursday?

People in DC are a whole lot more rude then what we see out here in the suburbs, at least where I live.

What I mean is, yes - they freak out when we have a forecast and rush to the stores - and yes, they buy up all the bread, milk, eggs and toilet paper.

They also tend to be less than polite when snowmaggedon is upon us.

But to destroy - DESTROY - a store like that because they have the patience of a flea and the entitlement of Paris Hilton? That is a joke.

I have never seen anything like that. The people that did that should be ashamed of themselves - the waste is phenomenal. And the poor clerks that had to clean it all up.

I guess being one of the most educated cities in America doesn't count for much.

They ought to do a poll on how selfish people in DC are.

I have lived in the VA suburbs for 40 years - close in - and we have never been snowed in/without power for so long as to starve, run out of toilet paper or water. People need to get over themselves and think.

Btw - your daughter is ADORABLE. She is the only thing that made this video bearable. What a smile. :)
