Snow day number two. The Federal Government is closed again in the DC area due to the snow. There are a lot of people angry about this, but from what I understand, the reasoning is twofold. First, a lot of people physically can’t get to work, either because they are snowed in or because public transit is still closed in their area. Second, the roads are still fairly treacherous, and by closing the federal government, they keep a lot of people off the roads, which allows crews to continue to clear. That also helps prevent accidents.
We’re supposed to get another 10-20 inches, according to the National Weather Service, though some of the forecasts are lower. The snow should start around noon and continue through the night. It’s crazy. I’m wondering what’s going to happen tomorrow. I’m expecting to have to go to work, but we’ll see.
It really has been perfect timing, since I’ve been sick and battling a cold. Not having to go to work has let me rest up more than I normally would have. I think today, I need to finally tackle the closet that I’ve been avoiding.
And maybe tomorrow, I’ll be back at work!
