Whiteout, Blackout

Snow falls on the grounds of Capitol Hill, Washington DC. Photograph: Jonathan Ernst/Reuters

This photograph stood out from a snowy series of images posted on the Guardian newspaper website. The snowfall in and around Washington DC has been huge. With all its delicate beauty, the snow has brought with it some serious problems.

The snow storm has left 300,000 people without electricity in Maryland and Virginia. Another 250,000 customers were hit by blackouts in Pennsylvania and New Jersey. A rather good collection of images submiited by readers of the BBC News website can be found HERE.
