'Inch Of Snow' Shuts Down Air Marshals

Hundreds of federal air marshals were grounded and unable to access critical information to pinpoint potential terrorist activity for eight hours on the eve of President Bush's inauguration after snow paralyzed the Mission Operations Center in Washington, said several air marshals and a supervisor.

The marshals said they could not reach the Mission Operations Center (MOC) by telephone to be placed on other flights after hundreds of flights were rerouted because of the snow, and marshals seeking information on reports of a dirty bomb in Boston were unsuccessful. Washington Times

It was 40 below with the wind today and we got at least 2 more inches of snow overnight, and as far as I know everyone went to work. These people really have to toughen up a bit. - KS
