Snowmageddon is upon us

All across the mid-Atlantic, residents are slowly recovering from the record-breaking snowfall. Washingtonians had to dig out again after the region was hit by a second mega-snowstorm. The second snow storm — dubbed 'Snoverkill' — left an estimated 10 to 20 inches on top of the snow from the previous storm, making 2009-2010 the snowiest winter since record-keeping began in 1870. With homes and businesses without power, streets and sidewalks buried in the white stuff, the only option for residents was to shovel snow, to curl up by the fireplace, or to start an enormous snowball fight.
