Today’s episode takes us to Washington DC, where compostmodernist and Worldwatch Institute fellow, John Mulrow, brings us an unexpected story of snow. Press play to listen.
“It’s Monday. This past weekend the Washington DC metropolitan area was hit by over 2 feet of snow. Federal agencies as well as most businesses and NGOs cancelled work today as much of the snow still hasn’t been cleared from the roads. Another five to ten inches is expected for tomorrow. It’s being called the SNOWPOCALYPSE.
Caught up in the elements, my neighbors and I enjoyed a weekend outdoors together. Neighbors I never knew I had, or rather, never thought to meet. As it turns out, the harsh winter weather struck us all with a refreshing sense of… community.
“It was an apocalypse after all.”
