Snowball fight tonight

The Capital Weather Gang is predicting a “snow thump” later tonight, with 4-8”+ of snowfall in D.C. and north and west suburbs. With those kind of predictions come sledding plans, pleas for days off from school, and… a giant snowball fight!! The Washington DC Snowball Fight Association, the group that was responsible for the 2000-strong flash mob snowball fight in Dupont Circle last February, has announced a massive snowball fight for 8 p.m. tonight in Dupont Circle.

Library of Congress hawk captured

The Cooper's hawk that took shelter in the Library of Congress Wednesday night has so far avoided capture by traps, bait or nets. She's eluded the Raptor Conservancy of Northern Virginia, the Humane Society, and the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service. She's a plane, she's a bird, she's Jefferson the hawk!
