For once, Obama's Washington is quiet -- photos
For once, it's not only the White House that's white. The grounds are too, thanks to a major snowstorm that swept up the East Coast quieting the weekend's political dialogue. A more natural kind of snow job. (More photos below.).....
Snow blankets the statues of U.S. soldiers at the Korean War Monument, much as it did to the real soldiers in Korea about 60 years ago.

Snow piled up next to the White House. (More photos are available here.) Nearly three feet of snow has already fallen on Dulles International Airport just outside Washington.
