How Congress sees the D.C. snowstorm

Constitution Avenue is seen almost empty of cars as snow begins to blanket Washington, Friday, Jan. 22, 2016. A blizzard menacing the Eastern United States started dumping snow in Washington, Virginia, Tennessee and other parts of the South on Friday as millions of people in the storm’s path prepared for icy roads, possible power outages and other treacherous conditions.

Here’s a new take on Congress’ point of view – watch the snow pile up the way House Speaker Paul Ryan would.

The speaker’s office promised: “No speeches. No politicians. No media pundits. It's just a pure, uninterrupted livestream of the snow falling on the National Mall, as seen from the Speaker's office in the U.S. Capitol.

Give your Netflix a break and check out the snowfall for a few minutes. Or a few hours. It'll be here all weekend long.”

And Congress isn’t planning to be back until Tuesday.
