With snow blanketing the Washington, D.C., area, the Office of Personnel Management has announced federal workers in the region will be able to take unscheduled leave and telework Friday.
Federal employees in the Washington, D.C. region took to Twitter to vent their frustration with the Office of Personnel Management's decision to open federal offices on time Monday, even as snow blanketed the area.
Senior Correspondent Mike Causey wants to know: Is it geography, topography, history or location that makes Washington — your headquarters town — such a nervous city in the winter? Or, is it the number of lawyers, government workers or tourists that make getting around town so tough, and us so cautious?
Federal government offices in the D.C. region remain open today but unscheduled leave and unscheduled telework are in effect due to light snow in the forecast.
Capital region officials cheered the Office of Personnel Management's "shelter-in-place" option for snow emergencies. Having people stay at the office during sudden or extreme snowstorms would lessen gridlock, officials told lawmakers Wednesday. They also urged area workers to know their children's school emergency policies and have backup childcare arrangements in place.
The federal government will be open Friday under the unscheduled leave policy. Senior Correspondent Mike Causey explains what's been done in the past and the Daily Debrief gets analysis from ABC 7 Chief Meteorologist Doug Hill about what to expect in terms of inches.
WTOP's Mark Segraves sat down with Metro's new General Manager Richard Sarles, who explained how the federal government and D.C. Metro coordinate to make the easiest commutes.
Mike discusses the federal telework policy and if it's been used in the bad weather.
