The streets in Washington, D.C., were barely covered with snow Wednesday morning.
Eventually, some 3 to 5 inches accumulated. But D.C. isn't particularly known for handling inclement weather very well. It's essentially a Southern town when it comes to weather.
Most folks huddled at home, with the federal government shut down — except for essential workers. The schools announced a day early that they would shutter their doors, too.
But there was at least one place where the work went on, and it always does — the U.S. Supreme Court.
