DC snow claims federal government, Congress as victims
WASHINGTON — The old joke is that the D.C. plow has a tough time handling much snow.
For many in Washington, the time for joking is past after the third storm in a week — referred to by President Barack Obama as “snowmageddon” — deposited two feet of the white stuff on the District of Columbia over the weekend.
Yet another potent storm is predicted for the mid-Atlantic region tomorrow, and Washington could get an additional ten inches or more.
The federal government is closed today for the first such snow emergency in a long time and a Senate session scheduled this afternoon was canceled. The House isn’t scheduled to return until tomorrow.
In a region that closes schools on predictions of two inches of snow, it could be days before things return to some semblance of normal. That’s prompting discussions of economic loss amid estimates that a shutdown of the federal offices in and around D.C. costs taxpayers $100 million per day in lost productivity.
