Burger overload? D.C.'s blogs

By Washington Post editors

This post has been updated and corrected.

Good afternoon. With snow on the way, Greater Greater Washington has a timely post about a D.C. neighborhood that successfully organized a volunteer snow-shoveling brigade. This storm isn't expected to drop a lot of white stuff, but it’s certainly useful for future storms. H Street Great Street reminds us that one of our local chefs, Gillian Clark,will take on Bobby Flay in a who-makes-the-best-fried-chicken face-off. (Apologies, just got home, scrolled through the program guide and realized this episode aired last night)

JDLand offers her 2011 “State of the Hood” assessment on development and happenings around D.C.’s near Southeast/Ball Park District/Navy Yard/Capitol Riverfront neighborhood. Headline? Growing, yet not growing.

Over at We Love DC, bloggers are wondering whether D.C. has one too many burger joints. Sure, each spot tries to put their unique spin on the humble burger, but how many shops can the D.C. area support?

Some lessons from Glover Park on how residents were able to organize volunteers to help the elderly or disabled shovel snow and clear walks after big snows. Thanks to Greater Greater Washington for sharing this.

Some tips on how to keep your pets safe during cold weather from DC Ladies.

My apologies -- this episode aired Wednesday night (not tonight) Set your DVR’s. H Street Great Street reports that Chef Gillian Clark of the soon-to-be-open Kitchen on K Street, the General Store and Post Office and formerly Colorado Kitchen will be on the Food Network's Throwdown with Bobby Flay tonight at 8:30 to determine who makes the best fried chicken. (Warning: There's a spoiler in the comments section of the post).

That's it for now. Thanks for reading and have a great rest of the day. Remember, we're expecting snow tonight, so you might want to allow extra time in case Friday morning is a bit messy.
