Spring is in the air

Spring is finally in DC!  After Snowmageddon/Snowpocalype this past winter, it's nice to see the sun out and all the snow melted. Spring in DC also means the annual Cherry Blossom Festival will be here in a couple weeks and since I missed it last year, I'll be sure to make it this time.  Keep your eyes out for a post with a link to lots of photos.

We wanted to send some DC spring greetings to our colleagues in Iraq, Afghanistan, and Pakistan so we designed and printed special banners that were on display in the State Department cafeteria this week.  People wrote personal messages (my favorite one is "Get back to work (person's name)!", drew pictures (I even attempted a bouquet of flowers), and wrote general messages to the entire mission.  We'll mail the banners out to the posts next week - or as soon as the poster mailing tubes we ordered arrive.

Sun all around the capital cities, here are the highs, in Fahrenheit, for tomorrow according to weather.com:
Baghdad - 75
Islamabad - 95
Kabul - 76
Washington DC - 76

How's the weather where you are?
