Last eve, the Colonel and I attended the premier opening for the Christmas on the Potomac attraction at the Gaylord at the National Harbor. It was a spectacular evening complete with fireworks, lighting of the holiday tree and a chance to visit the ice displays which are based on How the Grinch Stole Christmas, by Dr. Seuss. The temperature within the ice arena was a chilly 9 degrees; parkas are issued for warmth. Should you visit, best to take along a pair of gloves as there are no pockets on the parkas to keep your fingers warm.
