Israelis Seize Snowball Opportunity

Friends organize mass fight in Washington, D.C.

Print Email

Washingtonians don’t need us to tell them that they got over two feet of snow over the weekend (they also probably don’t need us to tell them that they’re getting another foot tonight!). But even as the city more or less shut down—the snow fell Friday and Saturday; the federal government was closed yesterday and today—over 2,000 young people took advantage with a massive snowball fight at Dupont Circle that garnered national attention (and maybe even a little national jealousy).

And the fight’s organizers, it turns out, must think that two inches of snow, much less two feet, is quite a novelty: they’re both from Israel. Ami Greener and Michael Lipin are friends who live across Dupont from each other and thought this would be a fun idea. Largely through Facebook, they organized the fight, and ended up thrilled: with the turnout, with the businesses that came to sell food, and with the generally good vibes.

Were you there? Do you want to pretend you were there? Then you may want to get in on their t-shirt.
