From the DC Taxicab Commission:

“The Interim Chairman of the DC Taxicab Commission (DCTC), Eric Rogers, today announces that the Snow Emergency Fare will go in effect at 7:00 am on March 5, 2015 to coincide with the declaration of a snow emergency for the District. The fare will remain in effect for 12 hours unless modified as determined by the weather conditions.

The Snow Emergency Fare authorizes taxicabs to add a flat fee of $15.00 to the metered charge. The objective is to induce taxis to remain in service and be available to meet the transportation needs of the public.”

From the Mayor’s Office:

“The winter isn’t letting up and neither are our volunteers! Serve DC is encouraging volunteers from across the District to join the DC Citizen Snow Team! The DC Citizen Snow Team will assist seniors and residents with disabilities with shoveling and snow removal in the event of winter weather.

The District requires property owners (residential and commercial) to clear the sidewalks surrounding their property within 24 hours after a snowfall. Even a dusting of snow can pose a challenge for seniors or individuals with disabilities, which is why we are asking residents to volunteer their services to help keep everyone safe and make the winter a little easier on those in need.

Register online at our website or contact Melvyn Smith at 202-727-7970.”

If you have any animal/pet photos you’d like to share please send an email to princeofpetworth(at)gmail(dot)com with ‘Animal Fix’ in the title and say the name of your pet and your neighborhood. Your photos will go into the queue (usually 6-8 weeks wait) and will be posted in the order I receive them. If you’ve already entered your pet and would like to do so again – that’s no problem – just space the entries out a bit. Please try to send horizontal photos 640×480 (medium size on your iphone) if possible. If you’re not using an iphone any size is fine.
