Snowstorm Causes 'Ground Stop' at Reagan National Airport

The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) issued a “ground stop” for Reagan National Airport on Monday, January 3, as a powerful winter storm dumped over 6 inches of snow in the area.

A half-million customers were without power in Virginia and Maryland due to the storm, the Washington Post reported. As much as a foot of snow fell south of Washington, the paper said.
