Getting Our Red On In The Whiteout
The biggest snowstorm to hit the Washington, D.C. area in years and what did The African Queen and I do? We headed outside to play baseball. Yeah that's right, we were Getting Our Red On In The Whiteout. The snow so deep around our house in Alexandria, Virginia early this afternoon, the drifts at times were higher than Sohna's knees. Which made for quite the sight when she tried to throw her fastball right past me!! Where was My Best Friend!! Screech!! and The NatMobile when we really needed them? If only Our Racing Presidents could have posted up as well?
As it turned out with few others around and outside, Sohna and I settled for batting practice in the front yard!! Both of us wearing our Red Nationals Gamer Jackets and matching batting gloves. The African Queen the red winter knit cap; me, the red Curly "W" home cap. Below are some more pictures of Getting Our Red On In The Whiteout:

Just having a Great Time Getting Our Red On In The Whiteout. Nothing quite like baseball in a snowstorm.
