    Well, we have not been plowed as of yet. But, surrounding streets have been plowed numerous times. I have been plowing the street with a shovel while my 2 small kids stay in the house. My husband is deployed to Afghanistan. So, although I am not a government employee, I feel sorry for those who are penalized by the government for the poor planning by the county that put these people at home.

  2. Donna Jones says :

    I have a jury summons. Should I report?

  3. Amy G says :

    My road is still not plowed out, and my kids’ school is closed. How am I supposed to get to work or have someone get here to watch my kid?

  4. Ikia says :

    So the roads are an ice rink, Fairfax county is open with unscheduled leave but has NO instructions for those that have jury duty. Their office does not open until 8:00 and I have to report at 8:15 (I’m at least an hour away). Since they can’t do their job by providing information specific to jury duty, they must not care very much about it. Their message recording is still from January 26th, so my guess is that they don’t spend time monitoring that either. This is unacceptable. There is no easy way to find out what my obligations are as a resident here. Fairfax, you get an F for this appalling lack of communication, especially with all of the social media available that you could have used to communicate with your constituents. I don’t plan to risk my life to get there when you can’t bother to give us information specific to jury duty. Shame on you.
