    A number of years ago, Mayor Marion Barry was asked for his plan for snow removal. Legend has it that his response was "Spring"

    I suppose the follow up question might be, "What is plan B?"

    The streets are looking totally fine now. They may refreeze at some point, but it looks at this point like Operation You're-Going-To-Bike-Today? was a smash success.

    And the trails are only slushy - no need for studs. Even when doing danger panda.

    Oh, I saw this guy clearing the W&OD on his way to the Custis. So tomorrow morning those trails should be good.

    The MVT from Key Bridge to 4MRT was slushy and fun on the Pugsley. It will be terrible tomorrow morning if the temps dip below freezing. Thank you Arlington County and Alexandria City for the trail clearing. Too bad it all stops when one gets to Federal land.

    I walked the Custis between the Ballston connector and W&OD (returning at 7 pm). The Custis was cleared from W&OD to past the Ballston connector and I presume to MVT, since they usually do that. The W&OD from Custis towards East Falls Church was cleared as far as I could see. Heading in the other direction, the W&OD looked partially cleared but could have been from use rather than plow, and I couldn't see far. The Ballston connector was cleared. The entrances to the Custis trail were not plowed, but some were partially cleared by use.
