9 D.C. Hardware Stores to Help You Beat These Unending Storms

Forget the Polar Vortex, that’s old news.

And don’t even mention that ice storm to me: I got very friendly with limitless buckets of water, escorting them up concrete steps … and that’s as far as I’ll go with that.

Now we’re experiencing Winter Storm Pax, a two-punch combination in reverse, taking the overhand right before the left jab. And that name? Does the Weather Channel have a sense of humor I didn’t know about? As I write, there’s a foot or so of snow on the ground and a wintry mix is still kicking our rears. Great.

This has been one heck of a winter. I’m not trusting Mother Nature anymore, no I’m not. I told her explicitly, “It will not snow again,” before this pre-Valentine’s Day storm, and, well, either she didn’t listen or I’m not the communicator I thought I was.

Oh, well … the meaning of this post, or goal, is to clue you in on nine District hardware stores to get you ready for the next winter surprise, no matter if it’s next week, next month, or next year. (You can save these life-altering posts on your computer or phone, you know, favorite me … eh … ApartmentShowcase.com, real easy, with just a couple clicks of the mouse or touches of the finger).

Whether this weather continues or not is anyone’s guess. The smart money says stock up.
