That’s the BIG question of the day and what we’re waiting to find out.

Apparently, surrounding counties have issued early release but so far nothing for Arlington and Alexandria. Driving conditions appear to be safe at this hour and typically, APS is one of the last to close. We’re hearing reports from people driving in this weather that they’re seeing sliding vehicles and multiple car accidents.

How do you feel about today’s snowfall AKA “snow storm”?

Is it big enough to let the kids out of school?

Be safe out there and we’ll let you know if we hear anything more on school closings in the area.
