How Was D.C.'s Reaction To Last Night's Snowstorm?

Last night's snowstorm was D.C.'s biggest thus far this winter.  D.C. residents often feel that the city is overwhelmed when dealing with winter weather.  

We wanted to hear how people thought this storm was handled, so we hit the streets this morning to ask pedestrians in Downtown D.C. how they felt the city did this time around.  Clean streets?  Un-walkable walkways?  Check the video above to find out.
