Washington DC Consumer Alert: Do not attempt to buy milk, batteries, snow melt or shovels in the Metropolitan Washington area. The shelves are bare and you won’t find any. Snow panic has set in.

Even though it’s March and we’ve had the first Cherry Blossom Festival press conference, snow is falling in DC and the suburbs, schools and the zoo are closed, electric lines are failing, flights are cancelled, and government offices are closed. As if the Sequester isn’t bad enough, now we have Snowquester.


Washington had a snow day without snow.
