By Anne Kenderdine

Since reports say there's more of the white stuff on the way, some major venues are still closed on Tuesday. (We're beginning to think the Snoverkill option in the name-this-storm poll could be a winner.) We'll keep a running list of Tuesday updates on this post.

Closed on Tuesday:
• All Smithsonian museums, except the Museum of Natural History and the Air and Space Museum
• National Gallery of Art
• National Archives
• Phillips Collection
• Folger Shakespeare Library

For a region of this size and of this importance( seat of the federal government)it is shameful that activities of work or entertainment should be paralyzed by the lack of effective and efficient snow removal systems. If the counties, cities and municipalities are not able to remove snow how should the public have faith or belief that these same entities would ever be equipped to handle any serious emergency.God HELP us all!!
