WASHINGTON (AP) - Thursday’s heavy snow kept most people home and cars off the streets, but Rob Pressly had other plans.

The 29-year-old Northeast resident said he got a little stir crazy after doing some work at home, so he decided to strap on his cross-country skis and take a tour of Capitol Hill.

Though Pressly has been skiing for years, Thursday was his first time trying it out on city streets.

He said he’d been tempted by other storms in the six years he’s lived in Washington, and after seeing that his neighbors had yet to shovel their driveways, he figured the city was in a similar state.

The trip from his home to the Mall took him about 20 minutes, Pressly said, and the going had been easy.
