CNN PRODUCER NOTE Samantha Newman of Washington, D.C. spent her snow day making homemade bagels. She says the "snow" came from the recent "snowquester." 'We actually did not get any snow in D.C. and only got rain. But the Federal Government closed and when they close everything else in D.C. generally shuts down,' she said. She decided to make bagels because her boyfriend loves them, and because she says she can't find a good bagel shop in the city. 'But the best part of a snow day is hanging out with my boyfriend and learning how to make his favorite food,' she said.
