A blanket of wet, slushy snow has fallen over the nation's capitol.

Federal employees stayed home and lawmakers called it quits early to avoid the worst of the weather.

The storm has dumped more than a foot of snow on parts of Virginia.

Tens of thousands of people have no power and around the region schools are closed.

Near Cincinnati slick roads were too much for one truck driver.

"I lost control of my truck jack-knifed it twice in two different directions," driver Mickey Perry said as he stood next to his overturned rig.

Near Chicago a roof collapsed under roughly nine inches of snow, and in Tinley Park a school bus lost control crashing into apartments.

Around 4,000 flights have been canceled this week due to weather.

The storm will continue to dump more snow on the East Coast as it moves into New England.

PAHOA, HAWAII - OCTOBER 26:  In this handout provided by the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS), A portion of the front of the June 27th lava flow burns through thick vegetation and a fence on October 26, 2014 in Pahoa, Hawaii. Scientists of the Hawaiian Volcano Observatory conducted ground and air observations of the lava flow from the Kilauea Volcano and determined that it was 510 meters (560 yards) upslope from Pa-hoa Village Road and the flow width was about 50 meters (55 yards) at the leading edge. Molten rock from the flow is inching its way towards homes in the town of Pahoa on Hawaii's Big Island where close to a thousand people live.  (Photo by USGS via Getty Images) (Handout, 2014 USGS)
