It may get to 75 degrees today but the snow will, possibly/hopefully, come eventually.

From a press release:

“On Friday, Mayor Muriel Bowser and DC Snow Team leaders will kick off the 2015-2016 snow season at the Dry Run press conference. The Snow Dry Run is a training exercise for the 800+ members of the DC Snow Team (Department of Public Works, DC Department of Transportation and other agencies) to prepare for snow fighting duties, proper handling of materials, proper maintenance of equipment, and proper operation of the equipment.  About 700 plow drivers will drive their routes, leaving from their assigned staging yards, while administrative, supervisory, logistics and IT employees will practice their functions at their sites, including the salt domes.

Mayor Bowser will also call on residents to join the District’s Resident Snow Team, a volunteer program run by Serve DC that connects volunteers with elderly and disabled residents who need assistance shoveling walkways during the winter.”
