This morning I woke up and did what any good blogger would do would do- did a little happy dance that our power stayed on through the night and then started using social media to Tweet, blog, and update my friends on Facebook about the DC area blizzard.
The conversation that I had with friends over coffee while at my computer this morning was far more satisfying that starting to clear the 24″+ of snow outside our house.
I’m so thankful for the conversations I can have with my virtual network 24/7 that I just put up a post on LeapFrog called Facebook and Twitter Keeping Me Connected Throughout DC Blizzard.
Here’s a little teaser….
Last night as I was sitting in the middle of a blizzard that is breaking all Washington D.C. snowfall records, all I could hope is that we would not lose power which would cut off my access to Twitter and Facebook. Sure, I was concerned about the frigid temperatures and our ability to stay warm while being able to provide nourishment to our family but I also didn’t want to be cut off from what has become a source of news from a wide network of reporters as they report live from fields that are local, national, and worldwide.
I have come to rely on Twitter and Facebook for the local spin from a trusted network of friends more so than news from the major DC television stations. The local news teams do a fantastic job covering but it is the connections that I have with my Twitter network and Facebook friends that make their updates and 140 character Tweets more meaningful to me.

And just so no one calls protective services, I did fortify the family for a day of snow play and shoveling before hopping on the computer. Promise!
