Metro is only operating trains underground and bus service is not expected to continue until after tomorrow. There are few people braving the streets, and that includes Metro workers. For their safety, they've been pulled off duty.
Spokesman Steven Taubenkibel says it's just too dangerous for their crews to try to clear the tracks.
"What we're seeing right now, and the fact that we've pulled a lot of people off the streets, we certainly don't anticipate any bus service Thursday," he says.
And Taubenkibel is hoping for some cooperation from Mother Nature to deal with the snow.
"Once the sun comes out and starts beating down on it, it will just come down the natural way," he says.
