Snow-flying sliding

photos by Drew Bird

Oh, sure, it looks like spring NOW!

But, weather forecasters say, there’s a snowstorm heading for us, due to hit early next week. So, there may be more scenes like these in the region’s immediate future.

Local photographer Drew Bird snapped his neighbors sledding on a recent snow-day. The sled-run is on a partly discontinued street, First Avenue, between “Little” Eastern and Westmoreland Avenues in Takoma Park, MD.
