In case you were wondering 1) I live in Northern Virginia. Yes, we really have gotten 3 feet of snow. All roads impassable for 4 days bar a few major arteries to health services. The mass transit system has been shut down since Friday at noon. 2) Snowbanks are now taller than myself. I am 6 feet tall. 3) We have lost 25% of our snowplows in the DC area. Salt is running out 4) There truly is no way for anyone to get into work. The only people working are telecommuters. 5) The Post Office isn't even delivering. Blizzard conditions I suppose they will not work in. If you would like to ask any questions about this wonderful blizzard from someone experiencing it, ask away. I'm gonna go shovel some more.
