As promised the snow is here. Only more of it. From Saturday afternoon to Sunday evening, the snow and icy condition will make it a quiet weekend here at the nation’s capital.
Congress has gone home and left the government (partial) shutdown drag into the record book as the longest ever. And with no end in sight, this is exemplary lose-lose proposition will sure to be remembered for a long time.
Maybe all is for the best. The fresh coat of snow and deserted streets provide a de facto truce for everyone to cool their heels and opportunity for a new start when the Congress returns on Monday.
Meanwhile let it snow.
