Snow strangles traffic in Washington

Washington-AP -- Washington's mayor says it could take nearly three days to clear the city's streets after one of the region's worst winter storms in a century.

Anthony Williams says cleanup crews will "be working around the clock."

The mayor adds he'll "be out there with them."

Williams says plow operators face a difficult task -- figuring out where to dump the nearly foot and a-half of snow they're scooping up.

The weather has left few alternatives for stranded motorists. Washington's subway system today is only serving underground stations.

And, officials say Ronald Reagan National Airport will remain closed until tomorrow.

Dulles International Airport is the only one in the area open today -- and it is only seeing limited traffic.
