County Still Preparing for Afternoon Snow

395-glebe-snowSo far, the so-called Snowquester snowstorm has been largely a bust in Arlington.

While northern and western parts of the county have some slushy snow cover (see photo of I-66 and Glebe Road, left), many points south and east have nary a sign of the white stuff.

Arlington County says roads are currently passable, but crews are prepared for the possibility of additional snowfall this afternoon. From a press release:

Arlington County Government and Arlington Public Schools are closed today.

Arlington snow crews have been working since midnight. We activated full shifts of 12 hours each; at 12 noon the second shift will come in. The overnight crew has been traveling County roads and spreading salt and brine. These shifts will continue throughout the storm and extend into the days following, as needed.

At this hour, our crews report that roads remain passable, with little actual accumulation, though we continue to urge everyone to stay off the roads if possible. We expect significant snow accumulation later this afternoon, tapering off into the evening hours.

Dominion Power is reporting one small power outage, which may not be storm-related. View the Dominion interactive outage map.

Have you noticed a striking sculpture at Monroe Street and Wilson Boulevard? It’s the Museum of Contemporary Art Arlington’s newest installation, Make Your Mark, by Arlington artist, Adam Henry. This sculpture celebrates MoCA Arlington’s rebranding and brings the museum’s energy outdoors.

On February 11, come inside when the museum’s galleries reopen with two new exhibitions: Rebecca Rivas Rogers: Grey View and Crisis of Image.

Grey View, in the Wyatt Resident Artist Gallery, is an homage to “gray” and a snapshot of the artist’s process. Consisting of photographs, collage, and a site-specific installation, this show is an outgrowth of Rivas-Rogers’ visual investigations into places you see on your way to somewhere else.

On the main level, Crisis of Image features artists who seek equity in today’s saturated visual world by developing new methods related to the production of images.
