Schools in Washington and the surrounding suburbs either opened late or scrapped all their classes because of icy conditions.
“Can I make a comment that is unrelated to the economy very quickly?” the new president (Obama) told reporters at a gathering with business leaders. “And it has to do with Washington. My children’s school was cancelled today. Because of, what? Some ice?”
Asked if he meant the people of the national’s capital are wimps, Obama said: “I’m saying, when it comes to the weather, folks in Washington don’t seem to be able to handle things.”
They are wimps! Not only can they not drive when dry and sunny, but you put moisture in the air and you’d think the weatherman was one of the Four Horseman of the Apocalypse. The fact I fear is that DC area schools will be less likely to close and the safety will not improve reaping violence, lies, famine and disease upon ill-prepared residents of the region.
