    Snow spotters for the National Weather Service reported accumulations of 11.5 inches in the D.C. suburb of Capitol Heights, 马里兰州, 和 10 inches in Rose Hill, 维吉尼亚州, by the time the storm wound down Monday afternoon.

    At Ronald Reagan Washington National Airport, 6.7 inches of snow was reported. Farther south, in Chancellorsville, 维吉尼亚州, 12.1 inches was reported.

    ‘It was balmy and foggy yesterday and then 6 inches of snow this morning, not even 12 几小时后. That’s not something I’ve seen before,’ said Shawn Devroude, 52, a federal worker who braved the blizzard-like conditions in the nation’s capital to play with his nine-year-old border collie, MoJo, at the Naval Memorial.

    The heavy snowfall, coupled with closings caused by the surge in coronavirus cases, forced much of Washington to shut down. Four of the Smithsonian museums had already closed in late December due to a COVID-19 outbreak, and the National Zoo announced Monday that it would close for the day because of the snow.

    Strong wind gusts and snow falling at a rate of 1 至 2 inches per hour made travel treacherous. In Virginia, state police responded to more than 600 traffic accidents, including a crash involving six tractor-trailers. State police said no injuries were reported in the crash.

    President Joe Biden made a slow return to Washington after spending about a week in Delaware. The snow grounded Biden’s helicopter, so he motorcaded to the White House from Joint Base Andrews in suburban Maryland, a slow slog that took nearly an hour.

    With snow blanketing the streets in and around the nation’s capital, the White House Press briefing was canceled, although Biden’s other public events were still on.

    Andrea Klein, 23, a graduate student at Georgetown University, welcomed the snow after spending the past two weeks in quarantine when one of her roommates tested positive for COVID-19.

    ‘Things have been feeling a bit stressful in the world lately so to walk around in the snow with friends is a nice return to normalcy,’ 她说, while strolling around the National Mall taking pictures.

    Many COVID-19 testing and vaccination sites were closed in D.C., Virginia and in Maryland due to the weather. Multiple school districts in the region also said they would be closed, delayed or have virtual learning Monday.

    Karla Rivas, who is originally from Miami but now lives in Baltimore, experienced her first-ever winter storm.

    '我喜欢它,’ 她说. ‘I feel like it´s great to have the seasons.

    总统 乔·拜登 was finally able to disembark from Air Force One on Monday after he was stuck on board for 30 minutes as airport personnel struggled through the heavy snowfall to bring the stair lift to the door of the presidential plane.

    The truck hauling the stairs moved slowly through the thick snow with ground workers helping to push it through the accummulation.

    The president was stuck on the plane, waiting on the snowy tarmac while the staff worked to free him and so the tarmac could be plowed.

    拜登, 79, walked down the stairs carefully, one hand on the rail and the other held up to his face to brace himself from the driving snow. Snow rained down hard, causing the president to sway as he made his way off the plane.

    不寻常的举动, a Secret Service agent walked right behind the president on the stairs. Usually they keep a few feet back to stay out of the camera shot. 去年三月, the president slipped and fell on the stairs while boarding the presidential plane.

    The presidential car, known as The Beast, was waiting for him. For the snowy drive back to the White House, Biden used the SUV version of his car instead of the armoured limousine.

    It took the motorcade over an hour to make the journey from Joint Base Andrews. 通常, given that roads are cleared for the president and sirens are blaring, it takes about half that time.
