January was a reasonably quiet month, although we did attend several local events. Among other things there was a conference at the CATO Institute and by Northern Virginia standards, quite a bit of snow.
We also went to the Capital Arena in the District to watch the Washington Capitals face-off against the NY Rangers.
The Capitals are planning to move the team to Arlington VA from Washington DC. Like the Rangers who play their home games in New Jersey but still insist on calling themselves the New York Rangers, the Washington Capitals plan to keep their name.
We went to the Kennedy Center where we watched the National Symphony Orchestra perform Dvořák’s Violin Concerto and Schubert’s Ninth Symphony. The Kennedy Center is a fabulous venue that consistently puts on top quality performances that do not even come close to challenging Manhattan’s stratospheric prices.
Finally, the National Mall was the site for the annual March for Life which began in January 1974. The marchers braved freezing temperatures and snow for the march.
We will be on the road traveling before too long, and expect to post photos from those trips when they begin in early March of 2024. In the meantime, here are some photos from January.
