Obama on blizzard: ‘Snowmageddon’

President Barack Obama calls the storm that shut down Washington Friday and Saturday “Snowmageddon.”

For a former Senator from Chicago, the storm that dumped more than two feet of snow on the nation’s Capital shouldn’t seem that bad.

The President’s motorcade had a relatively easy time navigating DC’s snow-covered but deserted streets as it traversed a few blocks from the White House to the Democratic National Committe’s winter meeting Saturday.

Others had more trouble.

California Congressman Mike Honda said he got stuck on Washington’s Metro subway system, which experienced delays from the storm.  Others entered the meeting’s hotel lobby covered with snow and ice.

DNC chairman Tim Kaine, former governor of Virginia — also hit hard by the storm — said the snow was “like an April day in Chicago.”
