The federal government will be closed again Thursday, Feb. 11, 2010, according to a new status update from the U.S. Office of Personnel Management (OPM), after three days of being closed due to snow.

The Washington Post notes that "four consecutive snow days is unheard of," and the possibility of the federal government being closed the whole week with a Friday off day could mean "uncharted territory."

To provide this latest update, the OPM also gave its Web site a server boost, after it had been crashing each of the last three days due to surges in traffic.

The following notice was posted on the site:
