Out with the snow, in with the slush

Snowmageddon this ain’t: The super-seeming snowdrifts of 24 hours ago turned quickly to a slushy mess Thursday as temperatures rose and rain fell. Residential streets remained predictably sloppy late Thursday, but main roads were navigable and airports were back in business. The power, for the most part, stayed on, and, while more precipitation could be coming tonight, the D.C. government will reopen for business at 10 a.m. today. (Schools, already been set to be closed today for a professional development day for teachers, remain so.)  Hope you enjoyed your vegan oat scones and artisan gelato, Washington.

N.B.: DeMorning Links will return Thursday.
