Today’s top story is once again . . . the weather.  OPM has announced that the federal government is closed again in the D.C. area on Thursday.  That will result in the postponement of ACCA’s scheduled argument in Ellerbrock.  The good news is that it looks like Thursday and Friday won’t bring any new snow, so I’m optimistic that the government will be open on Friday.

    Talk about the lights being on but nobody’s home!

    Having done a little recon around DC this morning, during which time I spotted exactly one snowplow, I respectfully decline to join in CAAFlog’s optimism.

    Many major thorougfares in the District, which are normally two or three lanes wide, are down to one or one-and-a-half lanes. Numerous intersections are constricted by immense piles of snow at the corners, blocking turn lanes and sight lines.

    In the unlikely event that the DC-area federal gov’t opens up tomorrow, my humble advice to you is (1) leave for work really really early (and go home early, too, to avoid the rush); (2) take Metro if you can; or (3) take the 8 hours off and give yourself a 4-day weekend to cap off the 6 days off you already got. Traffic is going to be an utter nightmare.

    Then consider the fact that had you known all this in advance, you could have decamped to some sunny, warm locale for a 10-day paid vacation.

    My dear Admiral,
    I remain optimistic. Casa CAAFlog is now completely shoveled out (no pun intended, my good Sir) and the sun is shining. I predict at most a 2-hour delayed opening tomorrow. Happy days are here again!

    WaPo at 2128: Washington area federal offices will open on Friday with a two-hour delayed arrival and with unscheduled leave policy in effect, following a week of record snow fall. Tomorrow’s forecast calls for higher, yet chilly temperatures and high winds and sun.
