We've got a slew of employees staying in hotels tonight--Midtown Manhattan is slowly shutting down. The snow is steady and swirling, and still our thoughts are with friends and family in Washington, where this new storm is on the verge of cruelty. Conditions there have turned truly dangerous, especially for the elderly and those dependent on outside help.
We'll have special coverage of this storm tonight, based on the sheer number of Americans affected by it, and the ripple effects from here across the country (including, as you'll see, the Olympics--where there was another big story today, before the games even begin).
We hope you can join us tonight.
