 Silly question but for some reason google won't cooperate with me right now.  Is it just a day or a week?  Or, I've also herd a rumor every Friday...  So, how long will this last?

 it's not shut down yet.  if it does, it'll be until they can agree on a budget.  could be a day, could be a month, could be whatever.

 I just read a minute ago on washington post that it will be shut down in 30 hours, but didn't say for how long.

 Hopefully not long, hubby is government employee.  They have to agree to a budget by midnight tomorrow, so far it's not looking good.  Last time it was 27 days...

 they can't say how long because they don't know.  it's going to be shut down until they can come to an agreement.  no one knows how long that will be.
