Government buildings, schools and universities in New Orleans are shutting down this afternoon in the face of severe weather threats.Hopefully it ends up being just another thunderstorm. It's only fun to sit around and snark about a free day off as long as nobody gets hurt.
New Orleans City Hall will be closing at 1 p.m. and all public meetings scheduled for the afternoon are cancelled. New Orleans Recreation Development Commission facilities will close at the same time. Louisiana Workforce Commission offices in New Orleans will close at 1 p.m.
City officials are urging residents to stay inside during heavy thunderstorms, which are expected to hit the area about 2 p.m.

Everywhere else it's just Tuesday
It had been a while since we had some sort of hunker down order around here so this is kind of nice.
