Snow and bulldozer during Snowzilla

What’s Open? What’s Closed? — D.C. Government offices, all Metrorail stations in the District (sorry, Virginia) and D.C. Public Libraries are open. Federal government offices, the National Zoo and D.C. Public Schools are closed. [DCist]

Some Lost, Some Gained — For some D.C. business, the snowstorm meant a hit in revenue. For instance, at Ben’s Chili Bowl on U Street, business was a “sliver” of what it usually is. At other businesses, such as Glen’s Garden Market in Dupont and Shaw, the blizzard led to record sales.

Fresh Coffee Coming to Dupont FreshFarm Market — Starting this Sunday, the FreshFarm Market in Dupont (1500 20th St. NW) will sell coffee beans and cups of freshly brewed coffee. [Washington Post]

Snowy Streets — 67 percent of our users told us in an unscientific poll yesterday that their streets have yet to be plowed. [Borderstan]

Poor Little Bobcat — Truly, this little bulldozer stuck in the snow at 17th and Euclid NW represents the folly of mankind. [Twitter]
