How tough are you? D.C. area blogs

By Lori Aratani

Good afternoon. Capital Bikeshare wants to know: How tough are you? Are you tough enough to commute via bicycle in January AND February? If so, 14th & You has a post for you.

Prince of Petworth has the scoop on an underground farmers market launching in the District. It’s dubbed “The DC Grey Farmers Market” and will be held in Petworth.

From D.C. Ladies -- some thoughts for things to do if you find yourself on your own for the holidays.

According to the folks at 14th & You, Capital Bikeshare is hosting a “Winter Weather Warrior Contest.” Here’s how it works: The Capital Bikeshare annual or monthly member who takes the most trips between Jan. 1 and Feb. 28 will be awarded the title of Winter Weather Warrior, a three-year extension of their membership, two annual memberships for friends, a $100 Hudson Trail gift card and a $25 Starbucks gift card. We repeat: How tough are you?

Just Up The Pike tells us about Silver Spring’s long-lost twin, Upper Darby in Pennsylvania.

We love the smell. We love the lights. But we have to keep in mind that a Christmas tree can be a hazard as well as a seasonal decoration. An important seasonal post from the Montgomery County Fire and Rescue Service on how to prevent Christmas Tree fires.

That's it for now. Thanks for reading and have a great day. And just so you know: It looks like there will be snow tomorrow. The Capital Weather Gang says there’s a 60 percent chance of an inch or more, but hopefully not more than three inches.
