One man who tried to walk a few blocks in Washington, DC this morning says even his "brain is a little frozen." Chris Matherne was covered in snow after the short walk
The new snow that's fallen in and around the nation's capital is being whipped around by wind gusts as high as 45 miles an hour.
Visibility on some streets is only about a block. In parts of Maryland, some areas got more than 10 inches of new snow before dawn, on top of as much as 30 inches that fell a few days earlier. Plows and salt spreaders have been fighting heavy snow in Pennsylvania and New Jersey.
At a hotel in downtown Baltimore, a doorman says guests have had to do a lot of walking -- since he hasn't seen a cab in a while. Philadelphia's mayor urged residents to stay home, warning that it would be "pretty horrendous out there." The snow that's been falling in an area stretching from northern Virginia to New England had earlier moved out of the Midwest, where it forced the cancellation of hundreds of flights.
