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

Pretty please?

Posted on February 12, 2014, at 6:28 p.m. ET

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.

Plus, OPM is very unpredictable:

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

I wonder how long OPM is going to make us all wait for them to make the call about shutting it down tomorrow.

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