Senate staff member Brian McKeon snapped this great shot of sledding at the US Capitol during the great blizzard of 2010.
And for those trying to be irritated at a government that is shut down, these sledding pics were taken Saturday. . .just to clarify.

    It’s a familiar image to me, absent the snow, when I used to ride back up the Hill on my bike in the evening after work at DOT — usually behind the exhaust of some bus — and cut through the Capitol grounds and onto East Capitol Street on my way home. More often I would just go up “C” street , behind the House office buildings and cut over First Street, or on further to where it merges with Penn. All pretty laid back compared to today’s security.

    Well, when the Capital Dome dissappears under the snow, with all in it, then Mother Nature will have once again made a very astute observation about when to use the hammer of extinction on a species that has outlived its usefullness.
    Don’t get me wrong, I don’t wish them ill at all. In fact, I think we should definitely get air hoses to them, and arrange for monthly deliveries of Spam and toilet paper.

    On recent trips to the Capitol it had seemed to me like there was almost a military perimeter around the place. You could not get at all close, waslking or otherwise. Has that changed, or might these sledders just be member’s or connected kids?

    Glad to see that the Capitol is finally being put to good use!

    Outraged – now. now. this is a great photo I think and appreciated Brian letting me post it. The government has been shut down for four days. Believe me, everyone here wants out of their houses and wants to get back to work for the benefit of the country and their own sanity. best, steve
