The Mid-Atlantic region has been paralyzed by some of the heaviest snow since the presidents day blizzard of 2003. The heavy winter snow collapsed a Dulles Jet Center hanger causing damage to some corporate jets. Falling tree limbs have left over 270,000 residents without  power to watch the Super Bowl game on Sunday. Many airlines have canceled their flights through Sunday leaving Super Bowl ticket holders with only one option . . . driving to the big game. Hopefully most left on Friday as the snow was just getting started.

As crews clear up the roads and runways, another winter storm will follow this one in about four days with lighter amounts expected. The pictures from the region look more like a ski lodge than the capital city and tell the story of the big blizzard of 2010.
