When Hell Freezes Over

IMG_2577With the current political climate, you could expect that someone might say nothing will move in Washington, D.C. until “hell freezes over”.  The President’s State of the Union address earlier this week ran out the same topics that have not energized Congress to act for several years.  His toothless attempts to use Executive Orders to prod the proccess along do little other than promote symbolism.  Otherwise, the Executive branch of government would be inundated with legal challenges.  With symbolism in mind, I noticed that for the first time in about 15 years while walking over the Memorial Bridge that the Potomac River has frozen over.  Keep any eye on politics.  I doubt that Hell has frozen over too.IMG_2573 IMG_2575

Up here in the mountains, we have a saying, "You can't get there from here", which really means "We wouldn't go the trouble to do that". Another concept is that "If you don't know, we ain't telling." For the rest, you'll have to read between the lines.

    But it might have frozen over. Congress is showing small signs of doing some actual work. Now I don’t have my hopes up, but if hell is frozen, then maybe politicians can actually do something besides posture and pontificate.

    To hell with Congress, those photos of the frozen Potomac are fascinating to me! Is that the National Cathedral on the distant hill? Perhaps we should keep our eye on that – “whence cometh my help”.

      We were looking north from the Memorial Bridge. One photo, taken of the western shore of the Potomac, has the high rise buildings of Rosslyn and the Roosevelt Island in it. The others, with the eastern banks, should have the Georgetown and the National Cathedral in the center, and the Kennedy Center to the right. Good sense of direction you have.
