The county are a bunch of wussies, you might say. El Paso County offices are closing today at 3 p.m. due to the snow.
El Paso County Public Health and the Clerk and Recorder's Office put out press releases citing the weather for the early closure. Other county offices also will close at 3 because of weather.
This means an early start to the holiday for county offices, which will be closed Friday and again Monday.
Over at the city, meantime, the "Grinch," Mayor Steve Bach, is keeping public servants on the job.
"Just heard from OEM," writes city spokesperson Mary Scott referring to the Office of Emergency Management. "The forecasts they are using are saying it’s moving out with no more significant accumulation so we aren’t closing early."
Also, city offices are closed on Monday for the holiday, not Friday AND Monday, like at the county.
