Man Must Eat, Despite Snow
Right, so there's a blizzard happening right now and the possibility of the city crumbling under the storm is very, very likely. All praise OPM and its fine ability to keep the government closed. Well done!The Washington Post breaks down everywhere you cannot go today because of this pesky little storm. But it will stop, your car will come out from that pile of snow and enjoying DC without the possibility of death will once again be possible, maybe.
- Thursday, February 11: Food & Friends can't deliver food to folks in need because of this storm and they need you, if you own a SUV that is, to help them with their deliveries on Thursday. They have yet to miss a single delivery despite all the snow, but are in need of help considering the blizzard and all. After spending three days at home 'working', it can't hurt to lend a hand.
