UPDATE (10:00 a.m.): Lauinger Library will close at noon on Monday. Leo’s will close around 3 p.m., with plans to ration certain food items for take out. More on this soon.
According to University spokeswoman Stacy Kerr, campus is closed on Monday in anticipation of the inclement storm, Hurricane Sandy, which is expected to hit Washington D.C. at 1 p.m. Monday afternoon. The Weather Channel predicts the forecast for the next 24 hours to be in the low 50s, with a high chance of precipitation. In the afternoon, the city is likely to experience squalls, heavy rain, and winds up to 60 miles per hour.
Voxy Gurl recommends the essentials: a bottle of wine, your favorite blanket, and a movie to keep you occupied while Sandy has her way with the world. Put all your cereal in the freezer, and your meats in the microwave. Immediately.
Update: The Federal government, D.C. government, trains, planes, buses, and entire Metro service cancels for all day Monday via DCist
