WASHINGTON —

Maybe their robes are water repellent.

No matter that the rest of Washington was shut tight to await Hurricane Sandy, it was business as usual Monday at the Supreme Court.

The justices took the bench at the customary start time of 10 o'clock EDT to hear scheduled arguments.

The court is an independent branch of government that court spokeswoman Kathy Arberg said does not necessarily follow what the rest of the government is doing. And parking's never a problem - the justices have spots in the court's underground garage.

The court apparently is making a concession to the weather, nevertheless. The court announced that it would reschedule Tuesday's argument for Thursday "due to weather conditions related to Hurricane Sandy."
