Snowmageddon: Winter Storms Strike The Northeast

Views

February 9, 2010: A major snow storm struck the Northeast this past weekend, blanketing several states and rendering hundreds without electricity. The storm practically shut down Washington, D.C., with both chambers on Capitol Hill breaking from their work. Now a second storm is blanketing both the east coast and Midwest, prompting the House to close down shop in anticipation of the pending snow. Here are some images of the storm from the Beltway and beyond.
