So glad that snow is no longer forecast for tomorrow. I am ready for spring. Bring on the Smithsonian Kite Festival, tulips and cherry blossoms.

Woke up to a very light dusting of snow in the DC are today. Nothing like this but still it looks pretty on the bushes.

I participated in the first ever twilight tower climb at National Cathedral this evening and it was marvelous. It was also amazingly hot in the tight, winding staircase but when you got to the bell room and had the breeze from about 250 feet up coming through the windows it was amazing.

If you have never done the climb, keep an eye on the cathedral website for when they offer it as it is well worth the time. It is 333 steps but that is divided up with landings at 3 points – not all in one go.
