So, I have this theory that IFPRI (HQ in Washington, DC) is the only CGIAR center hit by snow storms every winter. True/false?

Subject: Winter Storm Warning – reminder re IFPRI weather closing policy
As you’ve probably have heard, the DC metropolitan area is currently under a Winter Storm Warning. The current weather forecasts for tomorrow predict a severe snow storm for this area (possibly 18-24 inches) beginning late in the morning and continuing into Saturday.
If you feel that coming into the office will entail a serious hardship consider choosing to take a vacation day (or work from home if you have approval from supervisor based on programmatic type of work to do so).
