Wow. I picked up .87" yesterday.

About the same here. 1.01” total with .15” after midnight

I’m in Rockville/Gaithersburg and I haven’t experienced gusts this intense since Sandy on Long Island. Sandy was obviously worse, but these winds aren’t anything to sneeze at. Also had some light snow, but it appears that rain is falling now.

I guess imby, I was expecting more furious sustained winds, but they definitely die down for periods of time.  More like strong gusts here and there.

 

 

 

Daylight will bring the worst. From now til noon is the problem period.

Wut...OPM announced closed quite a while ago. For fed offices in the DC area.

Where did you see that? I don’t even see liberal leave for GSFC.

Unless the OPM page itself is lying - it's been up there for quite some time. I wonder if there's some caching issues - twitter lit up with it a few hours ago.

NASA GSFC is Code Blue - Liberal Leave

Yeah, just got the text. Don’t think I’ve ever seen OPM have a higher code than GSFC.

Off and on snow right now in McLean. Will stop for a minute, and will then come in like a wall. Would be more enjoyable if we didn't lose power

I'd bet money it's to keep people off the roads in case of emergencies

Like so emergency vehicles don't have to drive around people

Goddard can be stingy with their decisions sometimes.  For the January blizzard in 2016, OPM was closed for Monday - Wednesday the following week while we had to go back on that Wednesday with a late opening.  It happened another time in 2014. I’ve been surprised with a couple of their decisions this winter to remain open with code blues.
