At 6 p.m. last night, Fairfax County Public Schools announced that schools would open on a two hour delay today, due to expected snow.
Based on the winter weather advisory in effect overnight, all Fairfax County public schools will open two hours late tomorrow, March 1, 2019 (Cond 3B). School offices and central offices will open on time. SACC opens at 8:00 am

As of this morning, however, roads and sidewalks around the county were mostly wet, with some slick spots, while grassy areas had a coating of snow. Yesterday’s forecasts called for anything from no snow to 2 inches.
Given what was known last night, do you think FCPS made the right call?
Likewise, there are plenty of restaurants in Tysons proper, but via social media we hear grumblings about there being too many chains and not enough interesting, independent eateries.
So what do you think? Of the following list, what is the biggest need for Tysons?

There’s a lot of new stuff in Tysons, and plenty of people come here to work or shop, but what about nightlife?
We posed a question on Facebook earlier this week: is Tysons is a fun place to go out at night?
The overwhelming response thus far is no. With nearly 70 people voting, only 20 percent agreed that it was fun to go out in Tysons.
Though new developments like The Boro will be bringing new dining and entertainment options, those commenting on our Facebook post said that the current options are limited.
“Could use more bars/restaurants in between fast food and $$$$ places,” said one commenter.
“[Tysons] Biergarten is a perfect example of what I think we need more of here… a super social place without needing to spend too much,” said another. We’ve got plenty of swanky places… we just need more places that offer a casual atmosphere to hang out with neighbors and friends, and get some decent food and beer.”

It’s Columbus Day, which means that Fairfax County government offices are closed, along with local schools, and state and federal offices.
Should the county close for the holiday, though?
Anecdotal evidence — traffic levels and otherwise — suggests it is the least observed federal holiday. Next door, Arlington County offices remain open on Columbus Day. And Columbus’s legacy remains controversial.
For some companies, including ours, Columbus Day is a work day and, in exchange, our employees get the Friday after Thanksgiving off by default.
So what do you think? Should Fairfax County keep the status quo or consider keeping its offices open on Columbus Day?
