It looks like a slow Thursday in snow-covered Washington.
President Obama has no public events on his schedule.
Aides postponed a planned event to unveil "My Brother's Keeper," an initiative designed to help African-American and Hispanic men in poor neighborhoods.
Obama does have the regular national security briefings, and likely other meetings with aides who are able to make it into work.
The weather has also forced Vice President Biden to cancel a trip to Cambridge, Md., to address the House Democratic Caucus Issues Conference.
White House press secretary Jay Carney also canceled his daily press briefing because of the bad weather.
