We’re Not Alone: White Out Extends from Iowa to Chicago to New York


States of emergency have been declared across the Midwest and into the Northeast as the latest winter storm blows in.

Spinouts, cars in ditches, Washington D.C. closed down , Chicago and New York officials warned about subzero wind chills and subzero temperatures.

Ice, snow and dangerous conditions snarl traffic and cancel close to 3,000 flights. Bad winter weather share by 80 million people, according to ABC NEWS.

Sea caves on the Apostle Island in Lake Superior can be reached by walking on the ice-covered Lake Superior.

ABC’s Gio Benitez use a FLIR camera (infrared) to examine where clothing leaks heat. The camera finds heat leaking out of a zipper that doesn’t have a wind flap over the zipper.

The warmest winter coats are down coat with a label of 650 to 800 fill. Preferably the coats are long coats — well over the waist.

Thousands of flights were canceled, government offices were closed, and students got an extra day off from school across the Northeast as some of the nation’s largest cities prepared for a foot or more of snow.

“I have six layers on.”
