|Between 12 & 13 January 2019, my neighborhood |
received somewhere from 1 to 11.5 inches of snow.
The prediction was that, somewhere over 2 or 3 days, there would be an accumulation of 2-10 inches of snow ... we got about 6'ish, from what I can tell. But I'm not really sure what to go by; should I listen to WTOP radio, watch TV weather news, look at my Weatherbug app on my cellphone, ask Alexa (!) or just go stick a ruler into the snow?
Now everyone who works for one of the government departments still being paid who had been expecting to be waiting for 4am to find out from The Office of Personnel Management (OPM) if they're expected to show up for work late on Monday or at all (that's when OPM historically makes these decisions), have been advised: stay home.
As Mr. Bill Murray would say: "It just doesn't matter" for me. Sick people who may have pneumonia should say home regardless of whether or not the government is shut down due to weather or a wall.
