All Of D.C. Is Crying And Begging On Their Knees For A Snowday Tomorrow

Pretty please?

1. The Office of Personnel Management (OPM) is the overlord who gets to decide wether the Federal Government will close in the case of inclement weather.

 

2. Even though the forecast seems pretty bleak, OPM will typically wait until the last minute to close the Federal Government.

3. Plus, OPM is very unpredictable:

4. So seemingly every person in D.C. took to Twitter today to bitch at OPM for one of these:

Biggest snowstorm in 4 years bearing down on DC and OPM isn't making a decision until 4 AM? #shutusdownnow

@HemlockMartinis Don't jinx it. We have to wait until the OPM overlords deem it so.

— ALAJensen (@Amy Jensen)

Sending a big fat check to the first member of Congress to propose repealing the OPM if tomorrow isn't a snow day.

Did OPM seriously just announce they'll update by FOUR AM?? Guys, really? Let me help: http://t.co/oHsOLyNWwz #FrustratedHeatherisFrustrated

Oh, come on, OPM, SERIOUSLY? You're going to wait until 4 AM again to call it? EVERY FORECAST IS PREDICTING AT LEAST 4-6" OF SNOW BY MORNING

I think everybody in the office has just mentally checked out in advance of (very likely) no work tomorrow.

— ironicsegue (@Beth)

Ok the real question is will OPM make a call tonight or make us set an alarm...

— LoveOfShoesDC (@Sarah)

Dear #opm let's just make this easy and call it now.
