O. As snowstorms raged over the United States, millions of commuters were trapped and unable to move without difficulty. According to the New York Times, the snowstorm generated perilous driving conditions in the impacted portions of the country’s North East and Mid-Atlantic regions. Earlier this week, several commuters were also hit by a major snowstorm, which made travel difficult. Following the blanketing of snow in the area on Friday, the Weather Service said that air and highway temperatures were near or below freezing, making commuting “dangerous.” Winter weather advisories were issued for Suffolk County on Long Island, Middlesex County in New Jersey, and New London County in Connecticut in the New York region, warning of increasingly severe conditions. The National Weather Service said during a weather forecast that the Washington area, which was hammered by more than eight inches of snow just days before, was in for another round. Federal offices in Washington have been closed, according to officials. On Friday, some schools modified their operations as the mayor of Washington, Muriel Bowser, ordered school closures due to the storm.
