    Angry This is what our government closes for!

    I can't believe they shut down for less than 5" of snow! That is not a life threatening emergency! Hell, it's not ANY kind of emergency......-Paul

    Having been there in that type of snowstorm it actually is, they are ill-prepared to move the snow and take care of the roads and the drivers are not skilled in driving in such conditions. Side roads and parking lots mostly go un-plowed and they just wait for it to melt.

    Not to mention our government is never more efficient than when it is closed.

    The citizens would be better served if they would shut down in any snow, rain, sunshine, hot, cold, mild or overcast days

    I was going to respond about driving conditions in the DC metro area during a 5" snowfall, (which is actually closer to 8-10" here) but since I work for the government you guys wouldn't believe anything I say anyway.

    Not sure why I bother to come to this site... it's kinda like trying to drive by a car wreck and not look....

    We do honestly know that all government employees are not bad. Sorry we turn the heat up on the bad ones here and make the good ones hurt also. It's just that the bad people and bad happenings get more press.

    Having spent many years of my life in CT I get the what the F???? . THey have no idea nor any common sense in the South about snow, ice etc.
    The further south the more stupid they get. They brag that the interstate is ok but you cannot get there.
    Imagine coming from CT and having the big brag be a highway is open but nobiody can get to the highway.
