Missing 'Snowmageddon': D.C.-area blogs

By Washington Post editors

Cupcakes and weather. Weather and cupcakes. Welcome to D.C. Summer of 2010 edition. Yes, that was a whopper of a storm this morning. As I write this, the area is poised for a second set of storms to arrive. @DCLikeALocal pretty much summed things up this morning with this gem of a tweet: "All I can say is that someone in this town should think about repenting before we're all destroyed."

Storm news was a hot topic around the blogosphere this morning. And yes, I have another cupcake post -- but I promise it's my last one this week. Read on.

An amazing photo shot at Rhode Island and T this morning. Famous D.C. has this jaw dropping shot More photos from Prince of Petworth. Montgomery County Fire and Rescue has this photo of a tree that fell into an apartment building this morning on their blog. Of course, I'd be remiss if I didn't put in a plug for our great Post photographers. Here's a gallery of their weather shots.

Rockville Central blogs about the the best weather cameras in the city.

Let it snow!I Spy Things D.C. says she prefers “Snowmageddon” to our current heat wave (50+ days of 90+ temps!) and defies anyone to say otherwise.

A new cupcake king/queen? This may be your chance to snag your own reality show a la Georgetown Cupcake. Organizers of D.C.’s first ever state fair are sponsoring a cupcake contest. Modern Domestic (one of the fair’s organizers) has the details. Clearing something up I posted earlier this week. Georgetown Cupcake is NOT employing bouncers. Vox Populi explains.

Is "fangirl" a real word? Nats Fangirls, who's a Nationals fan even when Steven Strasburg isn't pitching investigates. BTW: love the new logo.

We missed this yesterday, but want to wish a happy belated blogiversary to Bethesda Actually, which launched two years ago. Hope it was a fun party!

That's it for today. Try and stay dry. I'll be back tomorrow with more great posts from the D.C. area blogosphere.
