A woman crosses a street in the falling snow in the historic Old Town Alexandria, Va., Wednesday, March 6, 2013. After pummeling the nation's midsection with heavy snow, a late-winter storm made its way Wednesday to the nation's capital, where residents braced for the possibility of power outages. As the storm closed in, the federal government said its offices in the Washington, D.C., area would be closed Wednesday. Many major school systems around Washington and Baltimore announced pre-emptive closures as well. (AP Photo/Cliff Owen)
