today, you can see my breath, the temperature is in the lower 20s. you got to climb over these big banks that these snowplows have piled up. in a city like new york, there's not a lot of space to put it. it's certainly a challenge for the snowplows. all right, let's broaden this out and show you where the jackpots were, so to speak, biggest snow totals. they were down to the south, where they thought they'd be. in and around the d.c. area, points west. shepardstown, west virginia, 40.5 inches. round hill, virginia, 36.3 inches. somerset, pennsylvania. allentown, 31.9 inches. blowing snow around, at least in the morning. it start to taper off in the afternoon. still some blowing and drifting this morning, just know that. wind chills will be brutal. even with the sun coming up. so, be aware of that. we'll start to warm things up tuesday and wednesday. until then, we'll be stuck freezing.

7:21 am
>> it's an uphill battle. even with the $1 billion he's allegedly willing to spend. given his wall street ties, it's hard to see who he steals more votes from. he would run as a bipartisan problem solver, according to aides. while there's no historical precedent, what does history know about 2016? everything about this race has been atypical, to say the least, dan. >> yeah, he said he's willing to spend $1 billion reportedly. he does have that going for him. all right, martha, you passed. you did a really good job of that. >> good to hear. >> well done, and a huge congratulations. martha has a big show this morning. she'll be going one-on-one with democratic candidate bernie sanders and also republican jeb bush. that's later this morning on "this week," right here on abc. >> you passed as well. >> i did? >> yep, flying colors.
