Washington Shuts Down! 4-6" of snow expected!
As Moscow laughs.

As it was in the beginning is now and ever shall be, world without end. Amen.
And I will show you something different from either
Your shadow at morning striding behind you
Or your shadow at evening rising to meet you;
I will show you fear in a handful of dust.

The government or the city?

Government. It actually makes sense in this city to keep government employees off the roads even if it's just raining. Tongue

Putin is smiling.
Somebody is going to have a very bad day.


In relation to the thread though: can your government go a single year without closing down?

The people closely associated with the namesake of female canines are suffering from a nondescript form of lunacy.

RE: Washington Shuts Down! 4-6" of snow expected!
I loved laughing about the weather panic in DC when I lived there. I once went all the way in to work, started working and realized an hour after start time that no one else was there. I called the HR manager to find out what was going on and she about freaked out on me for "braving" the weather. I think she was a little offended when I laughed out loud and told her that 6" of snow was a pitiful reason to cancel work.

It was the most peaceful day I've ever had at the office.

One Saturday, the wife and I drove to the pet store while there was about 2" of snow on the ground and none on the roads. We got to the store and it was empty of customers and had only 2 people on staff. They were the only ones within walking distance, everyone else called off because of the weather.

I have no idea why, but it seems like once you enter the beltway, people suddenly become weather wimps. They lose all rationality the moment a snowflake appears and would declare a state of emergency were it in their power.

Excuse me, I'm making perfect sense. You're just not keeping up.

All that snow of yours sure does sound... cool.
