Heavy snows in the Washington, D.C. Metro Area

Date Icon Publish Date

Heavy snows in the Washington, D.C. Metro Area in early February 2010 caused Arlington National Cemetery to be closed to the public over the weekend of 6 and 7 February and during the week on Monday through Thursday, 8-11 February 2011.

Funerals took place as scheduled on Monday through Wednesday, but were in doubt for Thursday, as additional heavy snowfall took place on Wedneday.

Throughout the storms, the Tomb Guards of the Third United States Infantry (The Old Guard) at the Tomb of the Unknowns maintained their vigil, as they always do, keeping guard over the unknowns at rest there.
