I never realized, until this year when I started paying attention to GULC and DC, how frequently it closes/shuts down for weather. I would have figured they were fairly used to snow during the winter, or at least fully equipped to deal with it, it being our nation's capital and all.
I don't know if it's true, but someone told me today that the city doesn't even own their own plow trucks. So...
It's true, we get them from Virginia and Maryland. It only snows a few times each winter, and up until a few years ago, rarely ever snowed at all. The city's still not used to the change. Also DC has one of THE most inefficient governments in the country, and it doesn't help that congress controls our budget, making it much harder to get anything new. FWIW, we're slated to get about 5 inches today, and possibly 8 by tomorrow.
