Snow Day For Local Schools, Federal Government

With anywhere between four and six inches of snow expected today through 2 p.m., local school districts and the federal government have announced that they are closed.

None of public school systems in or around D.C. are open today (most D.C. charter schools are closed too), and most local governments are following the federal government's lead by telling workers to stay or work from home.

There are some exceptions: governments in Fairfax County, Arlington County, Prince William County, and Loudoun County will remain open, though with liberal or unscheduled leave policies in effect.
