From OPM:

“Federal agencies in the Washington, DC, area are OPEN under 2 hours DELAYED ARRIVAL and employees have the OPTION FOR UNSCHEDULED LEAVE OR UNSCHEDULED TELEWORK. Employees should plan to arrive for work no more than 2 hours later than they would be expected to arrive.”

From @DCGovWeb:

“District gov’t and DCPS schools will open on a 2-hour delay on Monday, Dec 9, due to inclement weather in the metro area. @dcpublicschools”

From @DCPoliceDept just after 5am Monday morning:

“4D Traffic Lights Out- Ga Av & Irving St NW/ 4- way stop sign in place/ use caution/ expect delays”

“4D Tree Down- 16th & Geranium St NW // take alternate route/”

    It was nice of them to announce this, but would have been even nicer to announce last night rather than 4AM this morning so I could have adjusted my alarm clock accordingly.

      The problem with announcing things the night before is that often the situation is better than expected in the morning. In the northeast, schools do not cancel until early morning on the day of because otherwise they would have wasted snow days regularly, which means the kids have to go to school later in the year. It seems to me that the schools down here cancel early a few times a year. Fortunately, there is not enough snow to make it a huge deal, but it is pretty ridiculous.

    Going to be interesting what happens tomorrow with the morning rush hour storm.
