Winter storm dumps snow on nation’s capital
More than half of Monday morning’s flights at the three major airports near Washington, D.C., were canceled or delayed, according to FlightAware.com. Thousands were also canceled on Sunday after a winter storm rolled into the mid-Atlantic region. Even the president couldn’t avoid the winter travel woes: He had to take his motorcade to the White House from Andrews Air Force Base in Maryland after the snow grounded his helicopter.
How bad is the storm? Forecasters predicted as much as 10 inches of snow for the District of Colombia, Virginia, and central Maryland through 4 p.m. on Monday. The warning covered an area stretching from northern Alabama and southern Tennessee through Georgia, Kentucky, and North Carolina and up toward the nation’s capital. Other regions also got a New Year snowstorm, including much of the Pacific Northwest.
