Blizzard cancels CoCo supervisor’s D.C. trip

Wednesday, February 10th, 2010 at 1:17 pm in Contra Costa politics, George Miller.

The  massive snow dumps on Washington, D.C., has forced Contra Costa County Supervisor John Gioia to cancel his planned trip to a national pension conference.

He had intended to attend the conference on Monday and then piggyback visits to the East Bay congressional delegation on Tuesday. But he has to be back in California for meetings on Wednesday and cannot risk being stranded at Dulles Airport.

How bad is the weather? Rep. George Miller chief of staff Danny Weiss took this picture earlier today from northwest Washington, D.C. It reminds me again why I live in California. (Updated photo: Second picture shows Rep. George Miller out in front of the snow-covered Capitol.)
