An Icy White House

WASHINGTON (CNN) - An overnight mix of freezing rain and snow left Washington-area residents with a thick layer of ice on their cars and many roads, making for a messy commute for those of us who had to go to work this morning.  The scene was no different at 1600 Pennsylvania Ave, only its residents don't have to shovel or throw down any salt.  This job is left to National Park Service employees who are responsible for taking care of the White House grounds.

Some area schools and businesses are closed or delayed because of the weather.  This includes Malia and Sasha Obama's Sidwell Friends School, which is on a two-hour delay.

CNN Photojournalist Brian Yaklyvich captured the scene at the White House this morning.
