Christmas is over, and somehow the Giant Food at Georgetown Square ended up with a huge overstock of candy canes. That's a lot of candy canes. Most of them are peppermint, but there are boxes of cherry ones mixed in (and the cherry ones are very good).

This is the first good snow we have had in a couple of years. It has stopped now, but it snowed overnight and throughout the morning. We got 5 or 6 inches in total.
|The intersection of Old Georgetown Rd and Democracy Blvd|
There aren't many people out on the roads but there are some and they are going slow to keep from slipping.
|A stuck metrobus|
Here is a metro bus that either broke down or got stuck in the snow on Old Georgetown Road right across from Georgetown Square shopping center.

There is a lot of redevelopment scheduled in the Westbard area of Bethesda, around River Road, it has even started in the strip mall that contains the Giant Foods. Here is a point-in-time look at the area. It will be interesting to revisit this in a few years and see what has changed.

A temporary sewage line is propped up across Little Falls Creek.

The demolition of the Auburn Professional building at 4915 Auburn Ave in Bethesda, MD (and the adjacent Huntington Learning Center/Maryland Radio building) is technically not complete, but it is close. Most of the debris hav been cleared, there is just a couple piles of metal and a layer of brick and concrete block are left on the ground.
Here's another view of the demolition site on Auburn Avenue, you can also see the building next to it has a new mural that looks to still be in progress.
