Wizards keeping an eye on the weather

The heavy snow predicted to fall in the Washington area Friday and Saturday puts several local events in doubt, including Saturday night's game between the Wizards and Hawks at Verizon Center. A team spokesman said they are watching the weather and making plans as if the game will be played, adding that it will be played as long as the teams and the referees can make it to the arena.

On Friday night, the Wizards are scheduled to fly back from Orlando after playing the Magic. The Hawks will be traveling from Atlanta, where they will play the Bulls at 8 p.m. Friday.

Because of last weekend's snowstorm, the Wizards allowed ticket holders to exchange tickets for the Jan. 30 game against the Knicks for tickets to another game -- this Saturday's game against the Hawks.

Metrorail has already tweeted: "If snow accumulations are 8" or higher, above ground service will be suspended. Metro will operate below ground service only."

Stay tuned for more updates.

a snow cancellation might be one less loss (for now!). I say take it!

I wonder how weather affects other teams. Chicago and the bucks are probably used to all this snow.
