It all looks like there will be a white Christmas on the East Coast after all.
Here’s what we know so far:
350,000 people have power outages in 7 states.
This has been a record-setting storm and the biggest snowstorm ever, since records began, in December in Washington D.C.
The storm has caused delays at airports and on interstates throughout the region.
One couple interviewed were due to leave this morning and have been told they can’t get a flight out of their airport of departure — until Monday. People interviewed at the airports have said they have nothing else to do, but wait.
Reagan airport in DC has been shut, as has BWI international airport in Baltimore, due to bad weather conditions.
Residents are waiting for the storm to pass. Some adventurous families have made the most of the conditions and go out to sled and play in the snow.
Malls are deserted and Santa is left drinking his milk and cookies alone since few children are coming to visit for the usually holiday photograph. If you want to get your last-minute Christmas shopping done, then you will have the mall all to yourself.
Drivers are stranded on I-77 and nearly 100 motorists have been rescued since the storm began.
AAA asks travelers to postpone their holiday plans if possible. They expect 88 million people to travel nonetheless.
But travelers should know that any journey they make is likely to be delayed. Let’s hope they still arrive in time to add some ho-ho-ho to their ho-lidays.
