Tourists Nina Malinowski of Frankfurt and Daren Hansen (R) of Oldenburg, Germany are bundled against the cold as they walk near the United States Capitol Building in Washington, January 7, 2014. A deadly blast of arctic air shattered decades-old temperature records as it enveloped the eastern United States on Tuesday, canceling thousands of flights, driving energy prices higher and overwhelming shelters for homeless people. Washington, D.C., officials opened libraries, recreation centers and other public spaces for people to warm themselves from temperatures that fell to 7 degrees Fahrenheit (minus 14 Celsius) with wind chill factors even further below zero.
