Winter Woes Continue

The winter storm that paralyzed much of the country over the weekend moved into New England Monday with another storm trails behind it.

The storm made for an icy commute in Massachusetts.

"It's very slippery right now. I'm definitely not comfortable driving on my way to work," said one New England driver.

Travel problems lingered for the most of the day for much of area with sleet and freezing rain covering roadways.

"You have to be very careful and drive very slow, I drive slow, I drive slow!," one driver said.

Conditions were worse further south.

In the Washington-Baltimore and northern Virginia area, ice-laden power lines and tree limbs fell, causing outages that got worse throughout the day.

Roads were so dangerous dozens of schools were closed Monday.

A new storm sweeping in from the southwest could be worse, though.

Forecasters predict up to a half foot of snow could fall by Tuesday in the Baltimore-Washington corridor.

That could cause even more backups at airports where 1,400 flights were cancelled Monday.

Meanwhile, problems with the storm that blasted through last week persisted in Dallas Denver and Arkansas.
