snow more

Surprisingly, my agency has decided to close early because of the “inclement weather.” Granted, it’s still snowing even though we’ve already nearly reached the two inches forecast as the maximum, but from the windows here in our offices it doesn’t look that bad (granted, when someone even spits in the street in DC traffic comes to a standstill, so snow is usually disastrous given the almost legendary lack of driving skills in this area). On the other hand, our offices downtown were going to close at 2:00 anyway because of all the inauguration-forced street closures in their area, while we were going to remain open here in Arlington. Whatever the reason, I’m appreciative of the opportunity to head home a few hours early.
