Federal employees in the Washington, D.C. region took to Twitter to vent their frustration with the Office of Personnel Management’s decision to open federal offices on time Monday, even as snow blanketed the area.
It’s the second time this month, OPM’s weather policy has been called into question.
Earlier this month, dire weather forecasts predicted D.C. would be crippled by several inches of snow leading OPM to preemptively close offices March 6. But the severe conditions meteorologists predicted never materialized, turning out to be mostly rain.
Federal News Radio has requested comment from OPM on Monday’s decision.
