From DPW:

“Mayor Muriel Bowser will deploy the District Snow Team, starting at 6 am Sunday, March 1. The system is expected to move into the region sometime between 7 am and 9 am, bringing snow, freezing rain and sleet. Saturday’s overnight low of 19F means pavements will be below freezing and any precipitation will freeze on contact. The forecast indicates possibly a coating to an inch of snow, before transitioning to freezing rain and sleet Sunday afternoon, possibly ending after 8 pm-9pm. There could be some freezing drizzle overnight Sunday into Monday morning, which could affect the morning rush hour.”

From MPD:

“Yesterday evening a driver was waiting infront of Ludlow Taylor Elementry School waiting for his child to get back from a field trip and was standing outside his car when a subject walked up to him, pushed him to the gound and got into his car which was running. There was a struggle between the victim and suspect and the victim received an injury to his arm. The suspect had exited a black sedan that was being driven by another occupant. The first district detectives office is actively investigating the case.”

Despite the cold in the air, another annual sign that spring is around the corner from Garden District (formerly Standard):

“in the fall we said we would re-open for the spring on march 1st, but this year we’re going to do even better than that.

we’re firing up the smoker tonight, opening up the gates [Saturday] at noon, and we are guaranteeing that the beer will be ice cold.

also, to celebrate our 5th year in the neighborhood, we’ll be selling $5 hofbraus and bratwursts all season long during the 5 o’clock hour monday through friday.”
