From @USOPM:

“For 01/03/14, federal agencies in the Washington, DC area have the option for unscheduled leave/telework.”

From @mayorvincegray:

“District Government will be OPEN tomorrow with the option of unscheduled leave for eligible staff.”

From MPD Chief Cathy Lanier:

“Neighbors, the National Weather Service is calling for some of the coldest temperatures that we have seen in Washington D.C. for quite some time. With that being said, I am going to ask for your help in looking after some of our less fortunate residents. Please be on the look out for the elderly, others that may not have heat, those that do not have a roof over their heads, and our pets. If you know a neighbor without heat or if you run across a homeless person and they need assistance please call our hypothermia hotline at (202) 399-7093 or 1 (800) 535-7252 to get them the needed aid. Also, please don’t forget to bring all of your pets indoors. As a team we can remain vigilant and ensure that the less fortunate can endure the coming cold weather. Thank you for your assistance.”

    Not surprised, they got burned with the last ‘storm’ a few weeks ago.

      I agree. The last two “snow” days there was no snow in DC. I’m teleworking only because I’ll be more productive that way. (Except for this comment on POPville.)

    Keep them home… less pollution, traffic and increased productivity.

    It’s pretty ridiculous offices close when there isn’t even any snow, but when we actual get a decent amount of snow and ice they’re open. Makes very little sense to me.

      maybe, just maybe, it’s possible that weather can’t be predicted with 100% accuracy.

        I’ll give you that for when they close and nothing happens. But when snow and ice is coming down and sticking, one can see it. So really no excuse there.
