Well, I've only been here for a bit over a year, and last year was somewhat of an anomoly (it snowed a ridiculous amount. It would have been a lot even in New England where I grew up), but based on what I've seen so far....eh, not really.

I think we're only going to get a couple of inches though, and it should be over early enough that I don't expect any serious trouble.

Gov't is closing 2 hours early today, though.

The answer is no, only major roads will get attention early on and then clearing the roads will take forever. DC is a terrible city for snow.

TITCR. Be sure to allow for a lot of extra time if you're driving in.

Fortunately traffic shouldn't be too bad. Anything over about 4 inches and all the schools (and often the government) closes.

Edit: That's not to say you shouldn't allow extra time. Definitely allow extra time. It is generally worse if it is 3 inches or so, because people go out.

I'd drive all the way in. Streets in the "big important" areas of DC tend to get plowed well.

My guess is you're coming up from the South, in which case you'll be on a highway until the last half mile. At that point you are in the big important areas of DC.

Yeah i 100% agree with this, the area around gulc and union station is probably going to be clearer and you will be right there. Plus, the metro usually stops running above ground if there is 8 inches of snow or more (which especially in the suburbs looks to be possible right now). If that happens tonight it will probably be back up and running by tomorrow afternoon but IMO it's not worth the risk.

ETA: i don't think you can park overnight at any metro station lot (except union station, they have parking that isn't owned by metro), but i could be wrong.

Amtrak is supposed to be pretty good. I figured if they cancel I'll get my money back, and I definitely can't drive in all this anyway so we'll see what happens. Damn snow!

Well, I booked a ticket on Amtrak, hopefully I'll know early enough tomorrow morning if it'll be cancelled or delayed that I can drive the ~5 hours up there!

The website is only saying it expects delays from NY to Boston, so here's hoping! (plus I can sleep/do hw/read!) I'm so excited to go to D.C. again!

I got an e-mail from my student contact telling me to meet her at a specific location. The campus is so tiny that you can't possibly be lost for too long though.

From the office of career services -- 300 2L's received offers from firms during EIW. Unfortunately I didnt get a breakdown of firms or rankings.

For anyone who didn't get to go (to day one of the early ASW), or if those who went want to add/comment.
