It's just a little ice on the road, people. You know, what you put in your drinks. But WTOP is reporting that Federal offices are closing three hours early this afternoon. On the other hand, Metro is telling riders to expect a very slow trip home (there were delays of up to 40 minutes this morning). Also causing problems: Your filthy shoes. Please remember to wipe, folks, as "Metro is having problems with slush from commuters' shoes and boots building up in the doorways of the trains." Will you make it home in time to see Fox call New Hampshire for Dean? We'll keep the cocoa on for you.
