Maryland Blizzard of 2016: The Photos You Need to See

Winter Storm Jonas will continue to dump snow on many states in the northeast through Saturday night, until it finally moves off the East Coast sometime on Sunday. A state of emergency was declared in Maryland with two feet of snow already recorded early on Saturday. Snowfall totals in Maryland as of 5 pm on Saturday were incredibly high, getting up to 38 inches in Redhouse, 35 inches in New Market, and 34 inches in Cascade, Oakland, and Pecktonville. The blizzard was beginning to ease later on Saturday night, but winds were expected to stay high overnight. In Maryland, Gov. Larry Hogan closed Interstate 270 and Interstate 70 for plows to clear the roads. The entire length of I-70 and I-270, from I-81 all the way to the Baltimore Beltway -- 34.7 miles -- was going to be closed until 7 a.m. on Sunday at the earliest.
