(Updated at 2 p.m.) With snow expected to start falling in the next few hours, many Capitol Hill area residents are making their final preparations for the big storm.
The blizzard, variously known as Snowzilla, Jonas or Gorf, is expected to drop up to 30 inches of snow over the next two days. Earlier today, Mayor Muriel Bowser advised residents to stay home after 3 p.m., which leaves only a couple hours for last-minute preparations.
As expected, many stores around the Capitol Hill area are sporting some empty shelves today, but we’re compiling a list of places are open and in-stock. Whether you need food, a shovel or a six-pack, here are some places that Capitol Hill residents have noted are still open.
If you know of another area store, be sure to mention it in the comments or tweet us. We will update this list throughout the afternoon:
