Visit on Sunday
About Inclement Weather
During the winter, the Ethical Society occasionally closes if the weather conditions are unsafe for driving. Conditions may be safe in some parts of our Northern Virginia area and unsafe in others, so use your judgment and also check email (the announcements email list and members email list) or this website before leaving on a day where icy conditions may be present.
The usual procedure: A decision is made about 7:00 a.m. on Sunday morning by the NoVES President, the NoVES Leader, and two others who live in different parts of the county, as to whether NoVES will have its platform as usual or not. We do our best to interpret the predictions and current conditions to assess likely safety for our members and friends driving to the platform meeting.
If conditions look like they won't be safe for the drive to or from the Society, and assuming that power is not out, we then try to (a) update the front page of the website and send an email to the email lists (see above). Check for the email and web update by about 8:00 a.m. on Sunday (power permitting).
