Too snowy for snowball fight?

Even the organizers of a Washington, D.C. snowball fight are nervous about the storm that's expected to hit the nation's capital.

With forecasts calling for up to 2 feet of snow — accompanied by strong winds that could lead to blizzard conditions — the Washington D.C. Snowball Fight Association is taking a wait-and-see approach to its gathering in Dupont Circle, tentatively scheduled for Saturday.

"If it is still blizzard conditions, that's not the optimal conditions. We might have to move it. Maybe to Sunday, maybe later on Saturday," snowball fight organizer Ami Greener said. "Once it stops snowing, anything is good. Two feet of snow is fine."

The event is dubbed Snow Wars and participants were being encouraged to wear Star Wars outfits.  It was scheduled to take place at noon on Saturday.

Nearly 1,000 people were invited to attend on the group's Facebook page.
