Not everyone had a snow day Wednesday.
Alexandria Seaport Foundation, a nonprofit that works with troubled teens, braved the wind and waves to continue its mission. The foundation runs out of a boathouse on the Potomac River in historic Alexandria, Va.
Though heavy winds lashed the harbor, causing the boat to sway, Development Director Kathy Seifert said she was staying at work until the end of the day.
"It's as windy as I've seen it out here," she said.
Seifert said the core program works with 18 to 24-year-old youths who seek direction in their lives. Participants build academic, career and social skills by building wooden boats.
"There's lots of work to be done," Seifert said.
