No Goverment Shutdown; All Scheduled Activities Are On

As you’ve likely heard by now, Congressional leaders came to an agreement at the 11th hour last night and averted¬† a government shutdown.

Not only does this mean there will be no furloughs for government employees, it also keeps museum and national parks open, which means all activities scheduled for this weekend — museum and Cherry Blossom Festival events included — will be happening.¬† Great news for all of us who have been looking forward to the White House Garden Tours, Blossom Kite Festival, the new IMAX Born to Be Wild 3D opening at the Natural History Museum, and many more fun activities that would have been canceled.

I’m also psyched to know that my local library will stay open and my trash will be picked up.
