WASHINGTON--"You know that I am from Chicago,'' President Barack Obama said Sunday at the White House, "so let me first say that with the place where I live covered with snow I'm finally starting to feel like home.''

Washington had a historic snowfall over the weekend. I measured 18.5 inches in my yard in northwest Washington; other areas had even more accumulation. Unlike Chicago, almost everything closes down with the snow.

Global Warming, Anyone?
