The District Government has come a long way since the 1996 snowstorm that shut this city down for almost two weeks. Now, they have a time lapse map where you can view the snow response by time at any location in the city. Did they salt and play? Salt? just plow? Are you truly on the one block that has gotten nothing? Now you can know empirically with the DC GIS system for Snow Response. Simply input an address, block, location, etc. and the system will show you, in time lapse, what has been done. You can also turn on a checkbox to see live conditions (impassable, clear, icy, slushy, etc.)

John has lived in DC since attending CUA’s Architecture school starting in 1995. He is a UI/UX/Design guru for LivingSocial and also plays in numerous bands (Juniper Lane, Rotoscope, Boboroshi & Kynz) and loves hyping people on eating local food, sustainable human settlement patterns, gardening, and good old fashioned rock and roll and electronica. He runs the dirt lab (aka mega garden) for WeLoveDC, where he eats most of the proceeds.
