Mid-Atlantic digging out after weekend blizzard

(HawaiiNewsNow) - Most federal workers in Washington have been given the day off Monday, after a record setting blizzard that dumped several feet of snow.

From Virginia to New Jersey, back roads were buried. There was up to three feet of snow around Washington, and some two feet in New Jersey. Hundreds of thousands of people have been left without electricity. And travel was nearly impossible as snowplows worked to make streets passable and runways usable. Airports also warned of flight delays and cancellations.

"I've had enough snow to last me the rest of my life," said Joe Ruth of Arlington, Virginia.

"We'll all be digging out of for the next several days and as we watch that next snow fall which is coming," said Maryland's Governor Martin O'Malley.

Forecasters say another storm is expected to hit the region Tuesday, dumping several more inches of snow.
