Snow Emergency Starts at 9 A.M.; No Trash Pick Up Today


DC Snow Emergency at 9 a.m. After lifting the previous snow emergency on Saturday, DC is putting another snow emergency into effect at 9 a.m. this morning. The city will begin treating city streets for the expected light snowfall today. Remember the no-parking rules on certain streets during snow emergencies.

No DC Trash Pick Up Today. Today is President’s Day, which means there is no trash pick up. The Department of Public Works has more details.

SUNDAY: Shovel Out a Bus Stop Today?


Over at Greater Greater Washington, Dennis Jaffe has a post calling for volunteers to shovel out DC bus stops today. Jaffe is asking people grab a shovel and go clear out WMATA (Metro) bus stops in the area. You can read his post and the reader responses in the comments.

What do you think?

  • Is clearing the snow from bus stops something that Metro should figure out how to do… no matter how overwhelming the two recent snowstorms have been?
  • Are you willing to shovel out a bus stop this time, but not never again?
  • Or do you believe that residents should regularly help out with this type of volunteer action, the same way we are supposed to shovel our sidewalks?

So, is anyone going to shovel out a bus stop today? We have plenty of them in the area.
