Over two feet of snow fell on the Washington, DC area this weekend, crippling the city in one of the worst storms in the region's history. Over 200,000 homes and businesses lost power, and city officials urged residents to stay home as crews worked to clear streets and repair power lines.
Still, some sought to have a bit of fun in the winter wonderland. At least 2,000 people converged on Dupont Circle, in downtown Washington, on Saturday afternoon, for a snowball fight of epic proportions -- responding to messages posted on Facebook and Twitter and spread through word of mouth.
