    Whatever plow got sent to our cul-de-sac plowed our driveways in!!! Instead of pushing the snow to the MIDDLE of the cul-de-sac, the snow got pushed even higher onto our sidewalks and driveways. We can’t get out! We are at the end of FAITH COURT, Alexandria, VA (which is actually in Fairfax County), 22311. Faith Court is at the end of DAWES Avenue. Please help.

      welcome to your first major snowstorm! i assure you you are not the only one

      • Elizabeth Nigro says :

        we’ve been here for 30 years and in MANY major storms, but at least the last times, people with the plows knew to plow the snow into the middle of the cul-de-sac! How difficult is that?

        • Diana East says :

          These men and women are out here doing the best they can. Give them a break and STOP complaining. Wouldn’t hurt you to shovel a little or a little more or hire the kids going around trying to make a few dollars.There is only so much they can do with all this snow.

          Go buy a plow and see how difficult it is then.

    There is no place to walk, including near neighboring bus stops. It’s not even safe to walk in the streets.

    Watching FOX5 DC news. Their is no mention of Fairfax County government being closed today – just schools. I don’t know if it is that way on all local stations. Just FYI

  4. Felix Dianderas says :

  10. Joan says :

    Would like to know about tomorrow for government offices and employees.

    • John S says :

      Please advise on the status of Government & Court Status for Tuesday January 26th.

      • fairfaxcounty says :

        Hi John, a decision hasn’t been made yet about tomorrow’s status, but we will post a message here and at fairfaxcounty.gov as soon as we know. Thanks for your patience!

        • AC says :

          When will a decision be made as to the courthouse? There are 8:30 cases tomorrow and the roads are terrible.

          • fairfaxcounty says :

            The courts are closed tomorrow, Jan. 26. A decision on the status for Fairfax County government will be made later tonight.

            • AC says :

              Thank you!p so much for responding! I appreciate it. Will this be posted somewhere officially?

              are they serious?

            • Krish says :

              Are you serious? Why would you take until mid night to take a decision? Isn’t it obvious that it is not possible for many people to make it on to roads and to work. Please make a decision asap so that people can plan alternatives if they have to come to work.

  11. Abi says :

    Can you send an alert out when you make a decision? I did not get one yesterday, and I know many others that didn’t either. Thanks!

    • fairfaxcounty says :

      Thanks for using Fairfax Alerts! We do send an alert out when decisions are made, but I understand that not everyone receives those. Please go online to http://www.fairfaxcounty.gov/alerts and check to make sure your account is linked to our announcements. If it looks good and you still don’t receive alerts, you can contact the alerts team via email from the site.

      Good luck! We hope to have an announcement later this evening!

    please be fair to employees. the roads are still not there yet!!

  13. Dennis Nease says :

    The person in charge just doent have guts to make the call yet. Or the call has been made, but the communication is so bad, and the website is not being kept up to date. These Fairfax county Govt leaders are all running around scared, worrying about their budgets. Gutless.

    • Anonymous says :

      That’s just mean, the Fairfax County government staff make the best decision they can, taking into account multiple factors. Calling them names isn’t helpful.

    Please tell us what time the decision is expected???

  15. Anonymous says :

    please. please, please let us know!! you said courts are closed tomorrow so the discussion of county employees had to be made at the same time. Its now after 8 and your workers need to make preparations for tomorrow. If nothing else, please let us know the time of the discussion, we know you have one!!!!!

    • fairfaxcounty says :

      We are hoping to have a decision shortly. Please stay tuned.

      • Karen Wood says :

        WTOP lists Fairfax County Govt closed Tuesday the 26th. Interesting that the official web site does not mention this And why haven’t I received an alert?

      • areej says :

        I have a traffic court date tomorrow. If govt is closed what do i need to do to reschedule.

        • fairfaxcounty says :

          If you were scheduled for 9:30am Traffic court at the Fairfax County courthouse on Monday, January 25th (not the Town of Herndon or Vienna), your case will be continued to Friday, February 26, 2016 at 1:30 P.M. If you were scheduled for 9:30am Traffic Court on Tuesday, January 26th, your case will be continued to Friday, March 11, 2016 at 1:30 P.M. All parties (including towns) will be notified of their new court date by mail at the address noted on their ticket.

    Thank you for the early notification for cancellations for Monday, it is very helpful to know what to expect. It would also be exceptionally helpful to know about when the decision will be made for Tuesday for Fairfax County since the schools are already closed for Tuesday. Any idea when that Tuesday notification will be made?
