"Hundreds turned Washington`s Dupont Circle into a makeshift ice planet Hoth for a massive Star Wars-themed snowball fight following the weekend`s blizzard.
The Washington D.C. Snowball Fight Association said more than 500 people participated in Snow Wars: The Snowball Strikes Back, the Star Wars-themed snowball war held Sunday morning in Dupont Circle, the association`s preferred location for its annual snowball fights."
Unlike other natural disasters like earthquakes or hurricanes blizzards render an urban landscape into a picturesque winter wonderland.
Snowzilla killed over 30 people and brought commerce to a screeching halt, and it was certainly a disaster, but we should always make the best of a terrible situation.
If you`re stuck with lemon make lemonade, and if everything is covering with snow, you might as well have an epic Star Wars-themed snowball war.
You`re never too old to hurl a snowball and children of all ages joined in the frivolity at Washington`s Dupont Circle to engage in a snowball fight for the ages.
