Brrrrrrrr, Washington! It's practically arctic out there! Temperatures are apparently 20 degrees below average, and won't rise more than into the 20s. But get ready for this weekend—it could get into the 40s or 50s. 

Why not get your mind off the weather and warm up with our Valentine's Day Guide? We've added lots of fun pieces in the past few days—romantic restaurant suggestions; a girls'-only guide; and a guide to gifts you may or may not want to buy…off Craigslist.

DCist reports that the DC Preservation League is putting together their Most Endangered Places list, and are looking to the public for submissions.
