What's closed in D.C. on Thursday? Just about everything: Schools, airport runways, the federal government.
Thursday morning, with nearly 15 inches of snow having fallen in parts of the greater D.C. area, Metro -- rather remarkably? -- is still running, but drivers have been urged, strongly, to stay off the roads.
“You have to drive waaayyyy below the speed limit,” Sgt. Mark Cummings of the Maryland State Police told the Washington Post.
Washington being Washington, the snow has not only paralyzed the city, but also brought out the political "funnies":

Eater D.C. is keeping tabs on what restaurants are open (and cheap), for those who didn't brave long lines to stock up on bread, eggs and other French toast ingredients.
The Washington Post's Capital Weather Gang is live-blogging the precipitation event.
Let us know in the comments (or on Twitter -- @HuffPostDC) what it looks like outside your window. Unless you're off, like, sunbathing in the tropics. We can't handle the thought of that right now, to be perfectly frank.
