Snow, ice, coastal flooding, and freezing rain.

Those are some of the conditions a huge winter storm is bringing

to more than a dozen states-- from New York to North

Carolina.

The nation's capital is expected

to be the hardest hit, with more than 20 inches of snow.

John Jessup brings us this look from Washington

at how people prepared for the storm.

JOHN JESSUP: Friday morning's deceptive calm,

a precursor to a potentially historic winter storm.

This is predicted to be the worst storm our state has

seen since Snowmageddon.

JOHN JESSUP: The huge storm, packing a cold punch

across parts of the South, and blizzard-like conditions

are expected to barrel up the East Coast leaving

heavy snow falls in Washington DC, Baltimore,

and all the way up to New York State.

Hours before the storm--

UTILITY COMPANY: This [INAUDIBLE] calling.

JOHN JESSUP: Utility companies sending warnings

to customers about potential widespread power outages.

UTILITY COMPANY: We are closely monitoring

the approaching winter storm which may strike our service

territory.

JOHN JESSUP: Along the eastern seaboard, residents

in states like Delaware, New Jersey

are worried about coastal flooding.

And in the skies, flights grounded, ruining travel plans.

This is a very significant storm.

We are doing the best we can to reaccomodate passengers.

JOHN JESSUP: The heaviest snowfall

expected in Washington with as much as two feet of snow.

People all across the national capital region

aren't messing around.

From its leaders, like the mayor of DC,

who declared Thursday morning a state of emergency,

closing all public schools today.

Or area residents who are heading into grocery stores,

stocking up on supplies, preparing

to be holed up for the weekend.

I don't know about you but I don't

want to run out of my food.

I don't want to run out of my water and my bread.

And chilli!

JOHN JESSUP: Nerves are high after what

many are calling a trial run, in which an unexpected light snow

but they're stranded for hours, even delaying Washington's most

famous resident and his motorcade in Wednesday's

nightmare commute.

We are very sorry Wednesday's for inadequate response.

JOHN JESSUP: For the 77 million people in the storm's path,

they're hoping to dodge another disaster

in the wake of a potentially historic storm.

John Jessup, CBN News, Washington.

Well, despite the big winner storm,

pro-life leaders are planning to go ahead

with this year's annual March for Life.

Charlene Aaron has that story from the CBN newsroom.

Charlene.

That's right, Gordon.

The theme of this year's March is

that being both pro-life and pro-woman go hand in hand.

It's meant to challenge the idea that the work against abortion

is part of a so-called war on women.

Any of the language about War on Women

is just false rhetoric.

That's just not true.

To be pro-women is to be pro-life.

Women are empowered by the ability to be mothers.

And the March for Life takes place every year

on the anniversary of the Supreme Court Roe v Wade

decision that legalized abortion.

And you can find out more about the story,

including an update on today's events,

by going to cbnnews.com.

Islamic terrorists killed at least 20 people

in an attack in a popular beachfront hotel and restaurant

in Mogadishu, the capital city of Somalia in East Africa.

They struck with a car bomb, followed by gunfire.

I was with friends when they detonated the first explosion.

Luckily, I survived.

But my friends died on the spot.

I saw windows being smashed and people

began to run here and there.

It was actually a sad moment.

What a world we live in.

There's almost no place safe anymore.

CHARLENE AARON: The Al Qaeda-linked terrorists

are waging an insurgency against the Somali government.

Some Somali Americans have reportedly joined the group.

Here at home, an amazing new study

has found that our memories can hold

10 times as much information as scientists previously thought.

Almost as much information that's

on the worldwide web or about 4.7 billion books.

Researchers at the Salk Institute

for Biological Studies found that key parts of the brain

were more complex than scientists knew.

And that there is an underlying precision and efficiency

in the way that the brain works.

The new findings could help scientists

build better computers.

Gordon?

Now if it can only help me find my keys.

I got too much information in there, so I can't find it.
