I guess I was one of the lucky ones: Snow gridlock traps commuters for up to 13 hours


Denise Borders spent nearly 13 grueling hours on the Parkway – “just sitting for hours. Literally. Sitting, not moving” – without food, without a bathroom, without sleep. There were trees down and people whose cars got stuck trying to turn around and get off the parkway, Borders said. But for most of the drivers on the road, the snow was less of a problem than the complete gridlock that enveloped them.

“You saw people get out and have to relieve themselves out in the street. It was horrible,” Borders said after finally arriving at her home in Reston, close to 5:30 a.m.
