I have to commend OPM for proactively managing this impending snowstorm! The status was updated early this morning to being open with unscheduled leave this morning and early closure this afternoon. OPM is really on the ball and showing that they are on top of this event. They also use a variety of notification systems – web, e-mail, radio, television, etc. Bravo to my new hero – John Berry!
