Federal Gov’t, APS Closed

The federal government and Arlington Public Schools are both closed today due to the “Snowquester” or “Saturn” snow storm.

Although the ground in parts of Arlington has yet to become snow-covered, forecasters say the storm is intensifying and should soon start accumulating here.

    I’m still skeptical. It’s 36 degrees!

    This storm is all bark, no bite

    Snow cover on ground here in North Arlington.
    WAMU-FM 88.5 public radio (broadcast station in NW DC) said the snow there had just now intensified and had begun sticking to roads and walks.

    Snowing like crazy in my part of Arlington near falls church..really sticking to streets now!

  • WM

    Finally, some “real” snow.

    I say that all Feds stay home today AND we not pay them. That will add some bite to the Snowquester. No workee no pay.

      I’m a fed, and I’m at work in the office today. So is the rest of my building.

        I’m keeping the private sector open for business as well.

  • What?

    I was out around 9am, Pentagon/Crystal City area, it’s like 40 degrees out, snow just turns into a cheesy warm puddles when it hits the ground. Nothing’s “sticking” nothing’s accumulating. What the heck. Good article in this morning’s Express on why it’s so hard to determine snowfall here in DC though.

    Still just a massive slurpee outside without all the sugary goodness. My lawn is barely half covered, let alone anything sticking to the roads here in the 03.

  • Garden City

    The Feds calling off is a smart move that was suggested by the local DOTs. The snow is supposed to get heavier as the day goes, and what they don’t want is a repeat of Carmegeddon where everyone went to work in the morning and then got stuck when the worst of the snow hit right when everyone thought they’d better get home.
