Does Mother Nature hate us? 5 fun blogs

Just when you think Mother Nature can't possibly throw us another curveball -- she does. Yesterday's was a doozy. Thousands are still without power and photographs of toppled trees, crushed cars and other damage from Sunday's storms are still flooding into Post Central.

Three people were killed in storm-related accidents.

Sunday’s fierce storm has at least one local blogger – Congress Heights on the Rise -- rethinking all the things she said about “Snowmageddeon.” Meanwhile, one of our favorite weather-related lines from the blogosphere came from Famous D.C. – “Welcome to D.C. where the weather hates you.”)

The storm in photos. Check out photos of storm-related damage in East Silver Spring from Just up the Pike. The Georgetown Metropolitan alsohas photos of tree damage around the neighborhood.

Read at your own risk. ESPN has done a brilliantly titled special report dubbed: “What’s lurking in your stadium food?” I hope this isn’t what gives ballpark food that special zing.

Art from a vending machine? Eye Level tells us how American artist Clark Whittington re-purposed old cigarette machines to sell cigarette-sized photographs.

Want to join an ice cream club? Prince of Petworth has the scoop (sorry, couldn’t resist.)

Thanks for reading. Have a great day and enjoy the rare cool-ish break in the weather. We understand it's going to get hotter during the later part of the week. And remember: if you know of a fabulous D.C. area blog that we're missing, let us know!
