Is the Red Line cursed? D.C.'s blogs

By Lori Aratani

Good afternoon. Will we get four inches? Will we get 10? Will there be enough of the white stuff for tonight's scheduled snowball fight in Dupont Circle? We'll see. In the D.C.-area blogosphere, they're talking cold weather and curses (but not necessarily cursing about cold weather -- that's for Thursday when we're shoveling out of this predicted mess.)

The Natural Capital has an interesting question given our recent cold weather pattern. When is it too cold to allow children to play outside?

Given what’s happened on Metro’s Red Line this week (smoking brakes, fires, cracked rails) Unsuck DC Metro can’t help but wonder: is the Red Line cursed?

Some tailoring tips from Capitol Hill Style for gentlemen who want to look their best. Hint: if you’re short, might want to skip the pant cuffs.

All Life Is Local is seeking ideas for outwitting squirrels -- also known as "rats with good PR." Got a secret you’d like to share with your fellow man (and woman?)

Annandale, Va. has news of a new support group starting for parents whose children are deploying to Iraq or Afghanistan or who are currently stationed there. The first meeting is scheduled for Thursday – but if you can’t make it, no worries, there’s a number to call for more information.

That's it for now. Thanks for reading and have a safe trip home. Be careful. Some reminders from Dr. Gridlock on how to navigate tonight's commute. Be sure to check back with Post Local for up-to-the-minute updates on road conditions and weather.
