The "snowquester" closings countdown clock is on, with Montgomery County government, Maryland government, the federal government and county schools announcing snow days. Good news for those of us that didn't stock up yesterday: There are still plenty of places to get food in downtown Silver Spring, whether you're off work or not.
Whole Foods, 833 Wayne Ave.: The store posted a message on its Facebook page Wednesday morning that it would be open at 8 a.m., if not fully stocked.
Safeway, 909 Thayer Ave. and 116 University Blvd.: Both locations opened on time, but could close later today. Regular hours are 7 a.m. to midnight.
Giant, 1280 East-West Highway; 8750 Arliss St.; White Oak; Colesville; Burtonsville: All locations opened and plan to be open until midnight.
It appears to be a normal day for many restaurants in downtown Silver Spring. Lebanese Taverna, Pacci's Neapolitan Pizzeria and Adega Wine Cellars and Cafe all announced on Facebook that they are open regular hours Wednesday.
Pacci's Trattoria, located at 6 Post Office Road, will be closed today.
