Treacherous conditions on roads throughout the East Coast as a winter storm pounds the region with snow and freezing rain. Drivers have been advised to proceed slowly on snow packed streets, and many residential areas haven't been cleared. Washington and the surrounding areas were hit with over eight inches of snow, enough to close the federal government and schools. With the exception of first-responders, most workers have been told to stay home and wait out the storm. Those who did have to venture out did so cautiously --- prepared for the elements. All along the East Coast --- road and utility crews are working to restore power and restore access. A Winter storm warning is in place from Georgia up through Maine. The storm is expected to dump between 12 to 18 inches of snow on the East Coast over the next two days.
