'Worst Commute Since 9/11': Blizzards' Wrath Lingers from Washington to Philadelphia

In New Castle, Ind., crews work the streets early during a storm, spreading a layer of de-icing chemicals to prevent snow from piling up. "Daddy had a saying, 'It's better to kill the snake before it bites you,'" plow driver Bob York told the Associated Press. "That's our main thing – to get on it before it gets ahead of us."

Meanwhile in Moscow, Mayor Yuri Luzhkov reportedly considered using a Russian air force jet to disperse dry ice and silver iodine in impending storm clouds, in hope of making them dump their snow before reaching the capital.

While it's unlikely cities along the Mid-Atlantic will follow in Luzhkov's footsteps when faced with the next "Snowpocalypse," they may arm themselves with a louder message for their residents ahead of the storm: Patience.
