Obama Headed For Possible Happy Valley Ice Storm

Last week, Obama cut short a Jan. 26 visit to Manitowoc, Wis., to try to beat a thumping of heavy, wet snow that snarled the D.C.-area evening rush hour. He was too late; a 20-minute ride from Andrews Air Force Base, Md., back to the White House instead took over an hour.

This week's storm is also expected to bring more than a foot of snow to Chicago -- a city that, as Obama is fond of telling D.C. residents, is supposedly more used to dealing with heavy snowfalls. The last time Chicago received in excess of a foot of snow from a single storm was Jan. 1-3, 1999.
