Snow Great for Christmas and Shopping

By Carol A. Morello

Tysons Corner Center marketing manager Allison Fischer called the snow "perfect Christmas holiday weather." The shopping center opened on time at 9 a.m., though its L.L. Bean store had been open for 24 hours. A few small stores remained closed at 10:30 a.m., she said. Shoppers were walking the mall, but Fischer said she could not compare traffic to last year because of the storm.
"It's too early to tell what kind of impact the storm is going to have," she said.
Snow crews had been working since yesterday night plowing, shoveling and salting the roads. Fischer said all of the mall's parking decks were open and the center was prepared to cart snow off-site if necessary. Fischer said the mall planned to stay open throughout the day.

I live in Mclean. I watched a group of cars slide very awkwardly backward down Chain Bridge Road this morning directly outside Tysons Corner.

Please remember even if YOU have a nice 4x4, your dutiful shopper patronage forces kids in little Fiestas and Camrys to try to get to their retail jobs when their managers call and insist they come to work.
