The yankee government is closed today due to a snow storm that is blowing through the D.C. area, so I clomped around the Paco Command Center this morning and took some pictures (click to enlarge).
As storms go, this one's nothing to compare to what they've faced in the Midwest and the Northeast. Still, people in the capital region are such pansies about maneuvering in even a little bit of wintry precipitation that I wouldn't be surprised to hear reports of frozen bureaucrats strung out along Highway 50 and cannibalism in the remoter cul-de-sacs of Fairfax County. Kind of like a Jack London story, with BMWs instead of dog sleds.
Update: Every time I toy with the idea of retiring to Florida, I see a story about a killer sinkhole or an article about something like this.
