Photo: “Fairfax Covered in Ice”


    Thanks to Catherine S. Read for this cool photo of “Fairfax Covered in Ice.” The caption: “5 am on Woodhaven Drive in Fairfax City. Everything is covered in a solid sheet of ice. Tues., Jan. 18, 2010”

    Ah, freezing rain, gotta love it. Or not. Anyway, be careful out there, as a winter weather advisory remains in effect until 9 am this morning.  Also, be advised that OPM has placed the federal government in Washington, DC on a “2 hours delayed arrival” schedule; employees have the “option for unscheduled leave or unscheduled telework” today.

    UPDATE: Schools in “Fairfax, Alexandria, Loudoun, Fauquier, Prince William, Stafford and Spotsylvania County schools will be closed. Arlington County schools will open two hours late.”

    UPDATE #2: See the “flip” for a photo by Del. Scott Surovell (D-Mt. Vernon) of “icy trees in front of the {General Assembly Building}” in Richmond last night.
