Federal Government in Washington D.C. Closes for Rainstorm

March 6th, 2013 - 12:18 pm

“Saturn” was a bust.  President Obama’s Office of Personnel Management shut down the federal government today for winter weather.  And all it did in D.C. was rain, rain, rain and rain some more.  In fact, the official observation for Washington D.C. shows not even a dusting of snow on the ground for the entire day (as of 3:15 p.m.), but 0.92 inches of rain.  The rest of America must be laughing, particularly in places like Wisconsin.

Anyone care to guess how much that decision cost the taxpayers?

Cost? "No man's life, liberty, or property are safe while Congress is in session".

To be fair, I lived in that area, and a snowstorm on the way to EA/APG cost me a car, luckily not my life. Somehow, by moving from New Jersey to Maryland, I forgot how to drive in snow. I am glad that the company I worked for afterwards colosed during storms; besdies, I can work just as well from home.

Now I live in Haifa. No snow. Yay!

Wow - bunch of wimps.

I walked to work today in -19 deg C (roughly -2.2F). You put on a coat and just go.
