The Washington Capitals originally had the day off on Monday before kicking off “mini training camp” style practices to start a four-day layoff. It was ultimately good timing, as the DMV saw snow coat the District with 6-10 inches, leading to multiple school closures and delays.

With time on their hands, the Capitals got to enjoy the snowy weather and made the most of it. Here’s a glimpse at how the team spent its snow day.

Alex Ovechkin and company kept busy in the snow, with Sergei leading the snow shoveling duties.

Meanwhile, Dmitry Orlov made the most of the accumulating snow, using it to make snow angels. Honestly, he’s all of us in the snow, and it was a total mood.

The Dowd family also got outside, as Nic, Paige and Louie got some great family photos in the midst of the action.
