Mid-Atlantic Digging out After Epic Snow Storm

Ad Feedback

Millions of Americans across the mid-Atlantic are digging themselves out from under this weekend's epic storm.

With many areas buried under three feet of snow, residents say they have to work together to clean up.

"You've got to do it together or you're done. One person can't do it," Mayfair, Pa. resident Nancy Kelly said.

Meanwhile, travel is out of the question.

Amtrak railway service is at a stand still and several airports remain closed.

Even the federal government in Washington, D.C. has been completely shut down.

Power Outages

Hundreds of thousands throughout the mid-Atlantic are still without power.

"From 3 o'clock yesterday until now we haven't had any lights, any heat, so we haven't been to bed," Arlington, Va. resident Pauline Ellison said.

Many families are having to find other places to stay.

"As you can tell right now it's somewhere in the 40 degree range in the house, so with three little kids, it just made sense to get a hotel and be safe," Arlington resident Michael Stanton said.

While the blizzard has caused headaches for millions, there are many who are trying to make the best of it. People engaged in every activity from sledding to building snowmen to a giant snowball fight in Baltimore.

However it appears Washington won't be getting a break from the white stuff.

The National Weather Service has issued a storm watch for the area Tuesday. Weather officials are predicting the region may get another five inches of snow.
