Not surprisingly, the federal government has decided not to open tomorrow. Metro isn’t running at full capacity, most schools are closed, and a lot of the roads aren’t plowed enough — or at all. Two feet of snow in one storm is a lot anywhere, really, but particularly in places where there is limited infrastructure for managing it. And so, we’re still digging our way out.
I don’t work for the feds, of course, but like a lot of DC nonprofits, my office does follow the lead of the big guy in town when it comes to closures, so it’s a snow day for me, too. Yippee!
And I’d be remiss if I didn’t note that this might not, in fact, be our only snow day this week. A winter storm watch has been issued for Tuesday, with perhaps another five or so inches coming on top of what we already have. Sigh.
